This is temporary

Today I took off the tensor that was wrapped around my chest, hiding my bandages and my other breast. I didn’t look when I took it off. I haven’t really been ready for that reality.

Tonight as I changed into my pjs I had no choice but to look. I’m not sad (or so I tell myself), I’m firm and strong.. this is temporary. I may never look like I did, but I will be alive. That is all that matters…. and I will continue to fight this no matter what it looks like!


  • I can not imagine or pretend to know what you are going through. I do know though we are so very alike and i would hope i would have the same grace and strength you have.I doubt though i would . I love you more than words can say. A breast is nothing compared to the person you are. You are at war !!! You will win this cancer war and not lose but gain and we are all here for you and love you !!!

    • I love you too ❤️❤️❤️. I’m glad you were able to come before the surgery and we got to ride again 😊😊😊

  • You just rock! That’s just what it is. And you are ok to see one flatter side because you are just that smart and brave. You chose to save your life. And you know that our life is all we have. Screw society and everything it says about things that don’t matter at the end of the day, like our breasts. It’s not to say that it’s not hard, and that our self esteem and femininity don’t matter. But perspective needs to out everything in it’s right place. And you have nailed it. And I couldn’t be more proud. Your breasts do not extend the friendship to me that your soul does. That’s one thing I know for sure! I guess it’s easy for someone who never grew breasts to begin with to say, but it is the reality. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💕💕💕💕💕😍
