Kathy Bates, who has Lymphoedema of her arms post Breast Cancer treatment, is speaking out for the 10 million people who this disease affects… Both Primary and secondary lymphoedema
Thank you so much Kathy for stepping into the lime light and giving Lymphoedema a voice…
To day I went to the SCAR Project exhibition in Sydney and met the photographer David Jay. I was able to chat with him about the exhibition.
I have seen the pictures online of the scars carried by women after Breast Cancer treatment, but to see them full size and read each story will soon tell you that Breast cancer is NOT PINK!! The women are aged 17-35 years old and some have died since taking part in this project. In the past year I have learnt a great deal about breast cancer from reading blogs, hearing personal stories of treatment and on going metastatic Breast Cancer. If you ever have the chance to see this exhibition I urge you to go. You will leave with a better understanding of why Pink makes so many upset and gives the wrong impression of Breast Cancer.
