"Today is about Celebrating. Celebrating life after cancer and the gifts it can bring."
We are breast cancer survivors and we wear our scars like stars.
Hope Emerges is changing the conversation around mastectomies and breast reconstruction.
Changing it from one of fear and taboo, to one of empowerment.
Our bodies are a beautiful thing. They give us the gift of life, but sometimes they work against us and we have tough decisions to make.
For women facing breast cancer, the daunting decision to have a mastectomy can lead to feelings of loss, grief, insecurity and self-doubt. These can all lead to negative body image concerns and seriously impact body confidence.
It is our ambition, through the images we share here at Hope Emerges, that we will give hope and empowerment to women facing this journey and that they can love the skin they are in.
Their bodies are beautiful, scars and all.
Hope Emerges charity of choice is Kenzies Gift, established in memory of Nics daughter Kenzie.DONATE NOW
