Deleting photos on my phone, finding gems like this, wondering how I live my life. #whatisevenhappeninginthisphoto

Riette 🖤🖤🖤 “I was diagnosed with breast cancer first in 2007. I underwent a lumpectomy to remove the lump and had radiation. I was fine for about 8 years and then at the end of 2013 I discovered another lump while I was pregnant with my son. When I was 28 weeks pregnant I had surgery to remove the tumor.
“Luckily, the baby and I survived. When he was about six weeks old I started chemotherapy and then in September that year, in 2014, I underwent a double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. I also had another round of chemo. “The scars I’m baring, some days, I love them and I think about what I’ve overcome. Those are the good days. The bad days are when I see my body and it’s not my body anymore, I have limitations. “So many women have gone through similar and in being photographed for this project we are actually looking the disease, trauma or event in the eye and telling them, ‘Fuck you, I survived you and I survived this.’ It’s therapy and I felt beautiful.” Photographer/art director: @miss_luckypony

This is Ana she was very nervous to do this shoot as she had never done something like this before. She is one of my favorites. I love how bold and calm she looks.
My cousin @emaliebingham also did the illustration on her. Writing excerpts from 2 different poems on her jacket.

At the beginning of this year Angie and I met with @nicolacoop and came up with a shoot idea to empower women who had terrible scars, from either illness, birth defects or an accident.
We sent a call out and the response was amazing and heartbreaking. Reading through all the stories of how they had to battle stares and rude comments everyday, the women spoke of hating their own bodies.
I am so proud of the ladies who took part in this shoot and wish we could’ve taken photos of everyone who mailed us. I hope In some small way we helped these ladies feel just as beautiful as they are.
I am also proud of the ladies who put this all together.
