The Silver Lining – Seeing The Good In Life

Using Mastectomy Scars To Promote Breast Cancer Awareness

Stephanie is an incredibly brave and positive soul.  Instead of mourning the loss of her breast, she has been using her mastectomy scar to spread awareness of Breast Cancer.  Her photos on facebook have been a powerful inspiration for me.  You can follow along with her journey at A Lump And A Bump.

Stephanie was 38 weeks pregnant in these photos… hence the word “Bump” in her Facebook page’s title icon wink The Silver Lining   Seeing The Good In Life

I’d love to add more photos to this gallery.  If you have any Breast Cancer Awareness or Memorial Tattoos, or other Breast Cancer Photos, let me know and I’ll post them here.

My pix are a little less creative…
just sharing the reality of it.

Just a few days after surgery, with the drain still in.

Me, in all my gruesome glory. This was the first time I got a really good look at it without any bandages in the way. It was a little shocking!!

 

After that gory pic, I’m going to have to leave you with something HAPPY so you don’t hate me…

My 2 yr old, laughing and holding a knitted cupcake as he said “Mama, it looks like a BEWB!”
