Courageous Warriors; Beauty From The Ashes is a tale of extraordinary women, young and old, who took their recovery from breast cancer a leap beyond medical diagnosis. They created new paths of wholeness through body, mind, and spirit. Now they offer those gifts to others.

Come along on this moving journey and watch true warriors rise from the ashes. Warriors who were told that cancer treatment would not help. Warriors who were told they would not survive. Warriors who sought alternative methods of living. Warriors who came out of the fire stronger and more beautiful than ever.

The documentary not only has heart but showcases unique programs created by Breast Cancer survivors who are giving back to new warriors traveling this difficult path. Featured within the documentary are caregivers who are thrust into battle in full support of their loved one, along with those that have fought this battle, as well as individuals just stepping onto the battlefield. Also included are various nonprofits who make their unique programs available to survivors at no cost and other survivors who share their alternative paths to wellness.

Many have created organized programs like Personal Ink, COPE, Nurse Navigators, and Hope Held by a Horse, while others have taken an individual one on one approach coming alongside those new to the battle. They may make handmade salves, pure cbd extract, or just sit down with wine for a night where tears flow freely with no judgment. A powerful mentoring of sisterhood that nobody longs to be a part of but are grateful and at peace knowing it exists. These Courageous Warriors want others in the battle to know that “someone will always have their back. You are not alone”.
