I am a unicorn. I had breast cancer in my right breast and I cut it off. Well, not me, my surgeon. I knew right away I did not want to reconstruct. I wanted to just get the cancer out and be able to “bounce” back to my “normal life” as soon as possible.
For me, normal meant being one boobed. I had no idea what that really meant, though, and I spent time hiding it with a prosthetic and now I just free boob it — there’s only one of them but I am still ME and I pose topless now to share my feeling of being in my skin, body positive and confident… If only I could have felt that way even with the other boob but better late than never!
