To be a survivor is to be a winner. These women truly fought for their lives to share with all of you the power of being a survivor. The women represented in this book are elated and honored to share their stories with all of you. Everyone has a story to share. The stories of women survivors of domestic violence and breast cancer are indeed a population of women who face barriers present and invisible. It is our hope our stories allow for light to be shed on those who need to be healed and set free. For some, these stories will allow for you to understand the minds and hearts of women who are survivors, period!
