This is a freind of mine whom had a lumpectomy in her left breast a few years ago. Her cancer is in remission now.  Her goal was to let people know that no matter the changes to your body, you never stop being proud of what and who you are. We talked about doing a photo that showcased the changes cuased by her surgery and this is the result we hit on.

Daily Deviation

An extremely touching piece, with a strong message. Beautifully done. ( Featured by Mrs-Durden )
Your friend was brave to let you take this picture of her scar like this. Breast cancer is an extremely important issue, but a lot of people forget exactly what can happens to its victims, including those who survive. We see the shaved heads, but not the removed breasts. We run the races, but we don't see the scars. We talk, but we don't see, do we? More light needs to be brought to this side of the breast cancer discussion. We need less pink ribbons and more photos like this. Maybe we can make some progress by having women like this show their scars.

Looks like she had a lumpectomy on her right breast, not her left.

Inspiring, powerful and touching.
Although the topic isn't beautiful, the bravery of your friend is. Indeed.

Powerful. The strength people hold after events like this tends to make the person more beautiful than they could be with looks. Strength can go a long way, farther than your looks can.

I don't dare to say beautiful, because it isn't. Cancer and it's scars is never beautiful. But the picture is well done and encouraging!
Thank you for taking a picture with such a deep meaning. And also thanks for your friend, who shared a small part of her story with us.
