Unfortunately for many Americans every year, being diagnosed with breast cancer is a big reality.

Although much progress has been made into understanding the disease, there’s still a long way to go.

For hundreds of breast cancer survivors in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they decided to embrace their fight and survival of the disease with a tad bit of ink.

This was all apart of the Susan G. Komen “Ink For A Cure” event.

With eight Milwaukee tattoo artists donating their time, there was an endless amount of survivors and supporters getting tattooed.

You can definitely expect that the symbolic pink ribbon was a notable factor for many of the tattoos.

Denyse Rebro, a survivor herself was there to both get her stamp of survival, and supporting her fellow tatted fighters. Denyse said: “That I am a survivor. That I am a fighter. We all are. Everybody has a story. The more people I can touch and pay it forward to, that’s what I want to do. That is why I feel like I am still here,”

According to Fox 6, The event is also meant to encourage people to register for this years Race for the Cure. The race itself will help fund breast cancer care in the local communities.

Don’t ever stop fighting everyone. There’s nothing but room for more progress to come.
