Hi Midnight! Lovely to see you!
I am really pleased to see that this one got through and has been allowed to stay on Facebook.
There was another young woman about a year ago, who put up photos of her non reconstructed UMX, I think it was, and she was forced to remove the pictures from Facebook. There was a lot about it in the media at the time, and her pictures actually ended up being seen by more people, because of the outcry.
I think the De-Friending, speaks volumes about the so called "friends" this woman had.
I keep reading about friends disappearing after Dx. I have a couple who haven't called again, but I couldn't care less. I am just a bit annoyed that I didn't pick them as "Fair Weather Friends" earlier!
I understand totally how confronting these photos are, but sometimes people need a picture like that, to galvanize them into action and have themselves checked out. I know I have friends, who have been for Mammos, that had been put off, after seeing my scar.
For me, these women who are putting themselves out there, The Scar Project is another worth looking at, I see them as strong, amazing women.
All power to them!
