Breast Cancer Awareness Month Reminds Us of the Strong Women Who Fought It

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and we wanted to take a moment to recognize the brave women who have used their platforms as celebrities to discuss their own personal battles with the disease and help spread awareness.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the most recent celebrity to reveal she has been diagnosed, and she joins a long list of survivors including Christina Applegate, Shannen Doherty, and Olivia Newton-John.
