In case you didn't notice the pink billboards all over the highway or the placards at the checkout counter in your local grocery store, it's October and that means it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Sue is a straight up badass 💪
Yes, we're all eternally grateful to be cancer free, this is a separate issue. This is the issue of life after the surgery and chemo and radiation. Now we have to live the after life that breast cancer gave to us. This is what true survivors are made of.
“I want my walk to be proof, that no matter what the world defines as beautiful, I define me.”
I never felt my breasts defined me or who I was as a woman. Rather, my breasts were a part of me. Losing my breasts has been a brutal process, but having the opportunity to honor that part of me in advance has helped me to move forward.
