“I told my husband that my breasts were going to be cut off and he said that I will no longer be a woman. I told him that my being a woman is not in my breasts…the most important part of being a woman is not in the breasts”

The word cancer immediately brings to mind ideas of a painful death. But what of life? In What Doesn’t Kill You…a few courageous cancer survivors from GAPA – Grandmothers Against Poverty and AIDS, talk candidly about living with the devastating effects of Cancer. Affecting more than just their physical condition, they share stories of broken marriages, fears, self-acceptance and triumph over this deadly disease. Proving that what does not kill you truly does make you stronger.
