A breast cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event that deeply affects patients and their loved ones.

Whether it's treatment or coming to terms with changes to the body, battling the disease is a physical and emotional roller-coaster that requires incredible strength.

But as we've learnt this breast cancer awareness month from Laura Cannon's beauty blog and Ismena Clout's 'tittoo', the journey needn't be all doom and gloom.

It can be empowering, inspiring, enriching.

Five beautiful and inspiring ladies share their stories: what kept them strong and the most memorable thing they've done since the recovery - be it running a marathon, modelling in front of thousands or bungee jumping.
