The first time someone hears they have cancer, their mind goes blank. They start to feel as if they are already dead. The next question is “how long do I have left?” This is harsh. There are many out there that survive cancer and maybe, just maybe you can be one of those – but you have to have the strength and courage to move forward so you can be amongst the survivors. I have lost relatives to cancer – it’s sad, I know. Below, I am going to give you 8 inspiring celebrity cancer survivors and I really do hope this post reaches the right people, so if you know anyone who is currently struggling with cancer, please point them towards this blog.

This is a retired United States Army General. From 2001-2003 he held the position of sixty fifty Secretary of State under President George W. Bush. During the year 2003, when he was 66 years old, he had the cancerous prostate gland taken out. Now, he is known as a cancer survivor and a mighty strong one, if I might add.
