Sunday is National Cancer Survivors Day, a day set aside to “demonstrate that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality.” In honor of this day, we spoke with Shyrea Thompson, Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives at Susan G. Komen, and Dr. Lori Wilson, a cancer surgeon and breast cancer survivor herself, about the disease and everything you need to know, from signs and symptoms to, of course, survival. Check out what these women had to say in the video above.
