Breast cancer survivors' amazing stories of resilience

NATASHA Kennedy was enjoying motherhood for the first time when she underwent a double mastectomy at 27, after losing her mum to breast cancer.

Wendy Barnes was preparing for a triathlon when she discovered she had the disease and then, when she was about to celebrate five years in remission, came a second diagnosis.

Jane Healy was working with children in Vietnam affected by Agent Orange when she was told she had the aggressive 'Angelina Jolie' gene.

Three different women at different stages in their lives, yet all are among the sobering statistics of more than 15,000 Australian women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.

But it's their stories of hope and resilience beyond the diagnosis that are truly inspiring. Find out more in Weekend this Saturday.
