I HAD GOOSEBUMPS while read­ing the cover story on women bat­tling and beat­ing breast can­cer (‘We’re breast can­cer sur­vivors’, Oc­to­ber 9). The sheer de­ter­mi­na­tion to fight the dreaded dis­ease and the pos­i­tive spirit that each of the four women dis­played make them my he­roes.

I wish them all a healthy fu­ture and hope they have the strength to win their bat­tle.

THE SPE­CIAL EDI­TION ON BREAST CAN­CER not only high­lighted the grav­ity of the prob­lem but also gave an insight into the lives of real women who have sur­vived the dis­ease and are now an in­spi­ra­tion to the rest of us.

I es­pe­cially loved the real-life story of Cath Jones who only found out that she had breast can­cer af­ter dieting (‘Los­ing weight saved my life’, Oc­to­ber 9). She was in­spired to lose weight by her best friend Claire who then be­came her pil­lar of strength.

Thank you, Fri­day, for putting to­gether such an in­spir­ing and fan­tas­tic col­lec­tor’s is­sue.

THE BREAST CAN­CER IS­SUE was very rel­e­vant con­sid­er­ing the num­ber of women who are be­ing di­ag­nosed with this dis­ease. I couldn’t stop read­ing the real-life sto­ries of the women who fought and sur­vived breast can­cer.

I for­warded the mag­a­zine to a rel­a­tive who is also a sur­vivor and she was very thank­ful for all the in­for­ma­tion on al­ter­na­tive treat­ments and life­style changes one can make to stay can­cer-free.

I’m now go­ing to share the mag­a­zine with all my ex­tended fam­ily and friends to cre­ate more aware­ness about the dis­ease. Thank you, Fri­day, for such an in­for­ma­tive is­sue.

THE AR­TI­CLE ON BREAST CAN­CER SUR­VIVORS was an eye-opener. The way th­ese women have fought and sur­vived the dis­ease is truly com­mend­able. Hats off ladies! You re­ally are he­roes.
