“If it helps inspire one person undergoing treatment then it has served its purpose.” – Maggie Rose Moshier
"We hear that some people are against breast cancer survivors showing their reconstructed breasts simply because 'it makes them feel uncomfortable'.
But you need to remember that cancer survivors fought a battle most lose their lives fighting but they WON!!!
Pictures (showing the battle scars) such as this ☝ bring hope to a lot of fighters out there and if it inspires them to fight harder, why don't you just let them be and hope to God you never have to be in their shoes!!!" - source: miraclesandmesses / Instagram
"Yes, my ovaries are gone, my breasts are gone. But now it's just a new chapter and it's moving on and changing. If we don't change and evolve and move forward as opposed to going backwards to try to recreate what we had, you're static, you're not evolving." - source: redheadwayfarer / Instagram
"At first glance you see scars, swelling and bruises. Darkness and pain. A mangled body. You may want to turn away.
But if you are brave enough to look closer, you’ll see strength and resilience. Beauty in imperfection. Femininity that hasn’t been stolen by surgery." - source: jenrozenbaum / Instagram
"I'm still the same Brittney I was before and nothing will ever change that.. not even cancer. Yes, I miss my boobs, my hair, and my "normal" life before cancer but I believe everything happens for a reason. Of course I wish this didn't happen to me, but it did and I can't change that so why dwell on it?" - source: brittneybeadle / Instagram
"I’m getting my confidence back. I’m not as ashamed of my body. I’m learning to love it. I’m thankful for all the women before me who fought to make breast reconstruction just as much part of the breast cancer journey as chemo or a mastectomy is. I’m still nervous about dating and I wouldn’t win any body positivity contest just yet, but I’m taking baby steps." - source: heyyjules_ / Instagram
