In October, the Tribune Chronicle is once again seeking to honor breast cancer survivors by sharing their stories. The goal is to humanize the disease and provide support to those who have been diagnosed by sharing the experiences of those who have gone through this journey. Additionally, the Tribune Chronicle aims to highlight the treatments and support systems that have helped these survivors. The publication also pays tribute to those who have lost their lives to breast cancer. To share your own story or honor someone who has inspired you in their fight against breast cancer, please send a brief description to Features Editor Burton Cole or Metro Editor Marly Reichert. You can contact them via email or mail. Reporters from the Tribune Chronicle will be reaching out to individuals suggested for inclusion in their publications throughout October.
