By Tracy Milgram, Founder of BRCASTRONG

Today marks a significant milestone in my journey – it’s been 8 years since my mastectomy, a day etched into my memory with a mix of emotions. As the Founder of BRCASTRONG, I find strength in sharing my story, hoping it inspires others facing similar challenges.

A Reflection on Resilience

Nine years ago, I found myself being rolled into the ER, a moment that would redefine my perspective on life and leave an indelible mark on my identity. Amidst the uncertainty, I whispered to myself, “This is how I want to be remembered.”

The Birth of BRCASTRONG creates by Gabriela. In the aftermath of my mastectomy, the seeds of BRCASTRONG were sown. A platform not just for me, but for anyone navigating the complexities of their own health journey. It became a community built on resilience, support, and empowerment.

Finding Strength in Shared Stories

One of the most powerful aspects of BRCASTRONG is the shared stories within our community. Each story is a testament to the strength that arises from vulnerability, proving that we are never alone in our struggles.

Lessons Learned

Through these nine years, I’ve learned that strength is not just about physical endurance but also about the courage to face our vulnerabilities. BRCASTRONG is a living testament to the fact that our scars can become a source of strength and solidarity.

Celebrating Mastectomyversary

Today, as I celebrate my mastectomyversary, I invite you to join me in reflection. It’s a day to acknowledge the challenges conquered, the resilience discovered, and the community that stands beside us.

Empowering Others

BRCASTRONG is not just a name; it’s a call to action. It’s about being strong for oneself and others. As we celebrate this milestone, let it serve as a beacon of hope for those facing their own battles, reminding them that they too can emerge stronger.

In closing, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the BRCASTRONG community for being a source of unwavering support. Here’s to embracing resilience, sharing our stories, and paving the way for a future where strength triumphs over adversity.
