Living in 'Cancerland' during breast cancer awareness month

"This month is very difficult because everywhere I go I see reminders I have breast cancer."

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but one group of women with breast cancer isn't happy with the sea of pink.

Cancerland is a group of women with breast cancer who are trying to speak openly and honestly about what it means to have the disease.

Founder Champagne Joy also hosts a web series on the topic.

The BBC spoke to several members of the group about how the difficult choices they've had to make after their diagnosis.
