Celebrating National Nude Day with Ginny
Much to the embarrassment and wonder of that 12-year-old girl I used to be, I decided to embrace my flatness. I decided to share my story publicly, and the most impactful thing I could think of was to go topless on the internet. My scars showed the reality of breast cancer. It is not pretty; it is not pink. It is an amputation.
Up this week we sat down with Jaclyn, as they explained to us their inspiring story of going to in to get a breast reduction to help relieve some back pain. After going through some general screenings before following through on the reduction surgery, the doctors found something considering. Jaclyn had the BRCA1 genetic mutation, and was told they should get a preventative mastectomy just to be safe.
Up this week we sat down with Amber, as she explained to us her inspiring story of being diagnosed with an aggressive form of Stage 0 DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ)
Up this week we sat down with Cecile, as she explained to us her inspiring story of being diagnosed with two different types of breast cancer; one in each breast. Cecile underwent a bilateral mastectomy with no reconstruction.
Up this week we sat down with previvor Laura, as she explained to us her inspiring story of her failed diep flap surgery, which led her to get implant reconstruction surgery.
Mother & Daughter Reflect on Breast Cancer Diagnosis
This Mother's Day we sat down with mother daughter duo Barbara and Bridget. Barbara is a mother of two daughters, and we had the honor of meeting one of them at our photoshoot, Bridget. This Mother's Day we want to honor not just the two of them, but all mother daughter duos who have experienced breast cancer and how, together they were able to get through it even stronger. Barbara and Bridget sat down with social media manager, Bianca, and shared their experiences.
