Fight like a GIRL: Saudi WOMEN took on Mount Everest!

A few years ago my family received bad news, my Saudi maternal Grandmother was found to have stage 3 breast cancer. It had spread in her left breast and her lymph nodes. Il7amdlilah it was caught in time. My grandmother had a mastectomy of her left breast. She went through Chemotherapy, Radiation, lost her hair.. had her ups and downs... but she SURVIVED under the grace of Allah.  She is now Cancer Free, and is doing great il7amdlilah.At this very moment my very own mother is having a mammogram done to test herself... I pray the results will be negative enshallah <3



YES THEY CAN!
