October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and organizations all over the world -- like the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation -- work hard to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research in hopes of finding a cure.

According to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, it's estimated that this year, 23,800 women and 200 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada. Although many lives have been taken by this terrible disease, there are so many survivors who provide hope to those still fighting.

In that spirit, we're marking Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a collection of musicians -- female and male -- who have beaten breast cancer, featuring their music and inspirational words.
