    I have always felt that I had a mastectomy. In my mind, my breast called so much attention that I tended to “go undercover” as you state. I have been undercover probably all my life as I never felt beautiful in my own skin because I was molested at the beginning of puberty. I sometimes cup my hands over my breast and mutter, “if only I didn’t have them!” I realize then, that I should be careful for what I wish for.
    It’s hard to say what I would do during chemo/radiation or any other type of treatment but this I know…while going through adversities it seems hopeless and even endless, but once having come through to the other side, I am so amazed at the strength I never knew I had.
    I pass that strength to you, through me, by the Grace of God.
    Your visual art story is beautiful and compelling and it is through your art that you heal, or begin to heal, but more importantly you allow others to heal who can’t put into words what they are going through.

    It feels weird to say I really enjoyed this, but your work is amazing – thanks for turning your experience in to such an extraordinarily moving, harrowing and beautiful piece of work.
