But when a patient, Joanne Jackson, post a picture of his scar on Facebook last month, the social networking site to remove because it is considered pornographic. Now some women with one breast also follow Joanne.
Shamelessly, some one breasted women posing topless and revealing why they are proud of the scar.
This is the pose of the women who remained proud of her body despite having only one breast due to breast cancer, as reported by Dailymail:
1. Joanne Jackson (40 years)
Last spring, she found a pea-sized lump in her breast. Doctors diagnose the cancer in her breast. He was asked to perform a biopsy to determine whether to perform a mastectomy (removal of the entire breast) or lumpectomy (removal of cancerous tissue).
“I came home and announced on the Facebook breast cancer immediately, so I do not need to tell people individually. I also decided that whatever the outcome of the biopsy, I would have a mastectomy,” said Joanne Jackson.
According to him, the young age of the patient, the more aggressive the cancer to get, so he wanted to lift the breasts to maximize the chance remove cancer from his body and could see her children grow up.
A few weeks after the mastectomy, a friend of her husband who is a photographer willing to offer if Joanne was photographed together with a scar on her breast. He was immediately approved it. He wants to show that women who end up with a mastectomy can still look sexy.
2. Cheryl Kerr (40 years), from Liverpool
September 2010, at the age of 38 years Cheryl found a lump in her right breast and felt a pain like a shot. He did have a cyst before, so this condition is not ditanggapinya seriously. 3 months later he had to see a doctor and diagnosed with breast cancer.
Because it is still very young, the doctor asked if he wanted to save her eggs and if you want to chemotherapy. But he refused both. According to him, harvesting eggs can delay treatment, even though he has stage 2 cancer that has spread to lymph nodes. He also did not need chemotherapy because she did not want her daughter to see it without the hair.
He finally decided to mastectomy. 3 days after surgery, he felt very bad and had been mutilated. Loss of the breast and a single woman, to be the biggest test of his life.
He even had suicidal depression so. But grief seakaan disappear when there is offered to photograph. He really enjoyed when photographed. He wants to show that she still looks beautiful.
“I feel like Frankenstein at first. Now I want to show other women, you can go through a mastectomy and still be beautiful,” said Cheryl Kerr.
3. Justine Thompson (49 years), from Peterborough
He felt a lump in 2001 and 3 months after diagnosis, he was ready to lose her breasts. He was more afraid of losing life and leave her baby daughter. Moreover, her breasts were not so great that he did not feel too emotional to lose something that could kill him.
A year later, I underwent reconstruction to provide a balanced body shape again. But the cancer story was not finished. In 2005, he found another lump in the breast bone, right in the middle of the chest.
This means that breast implants should be removed and the sternum should be removed. Doctors also found a tumor in his lungs, which then also have an operation.
In 2010, again, he found cancer in her right breast. Fortunately, this time the cancer is caused by hormones, so he just remove the ovaries to stop producing estrogen and taking Tamoxifen. Cancer disappeared.
“Now I do not have breasts and I am very happy because I am in good health. I do not mind people know that I have no breasts. Still have much to do in this life,” he concluded.
4. Joanna Kirkup (27 years)
Before the breast removed last March, he was very nervous. He never even had surgery before. And because he was very young, the doctor would want to do all of her treatment.
There is a size 5 inch scar on his chest, but he thought it was very straight and smooth and he felt proud of it. Many people are asking about her breasts and she loves showing it off.
During chemotherapy, she lost her hair, nails, eyebrows and eyelashes. According to him, is far more traumatic than losing a breast. He could hide the breast from the outside world, but shave the hair and use a head covering is showing that I had cancer. It’s more difficult for Joanna.
At that time, the reconstruction is not an option because radiotherapy affects the breast tissue. But now that’s over she is considering some type of surgery.
“Come share in the photo shoot was great. I really want to get involved because they want to do a little effort to raise awareness. None of my friends who checked her breasts before I was diagnosed, and I am very lucky to have done,” added Joanna
