Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
Strange to say, but breast cancer saved me. I’ve learned so much about me that I wouldn’t have thought was possible. I’m brave, I’m strong, and I have so much to be grateful for. * Sally Kinter
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Read the inspiring story of breast cancer survivor Sally Kinter, who found sisterhood and strength as part of the Breast Cancer 2 Bikini program.

During our recent interview, Sally Kinter remained composed nearly the entire time she recounted her breast cancer story — from diagnosis and treatment to joining Breast Cancer 2 Bikini (B2B). But when asked why she applied to B2B — a rigorous training program that prepares breast cancer survivors for a public bodybuilding competition – her voice cracked. “I lost a lot of friends when I got cancer — people who had a hard time dealing with my diagnosis. I wanted to build a community of fellow survivors.”
