The uniboob mission - Raising awareness on the flat choice in Denmark
I consider myself lucky in my situation; as it is now I am contacted several times a week by strangers who have been inspired by my way of dealing with cancer and chemotherapy or by the mere fact that I’m comfortable about my new looks. Everyone is different and have a different set of perspectives or luggage that will make a journey such as this more or less difficult. Nevertheless, I feel great comfort in the fact that I have made a small contribution to making others feel better and it has helped myself to better deal with my own challenges. My hope is that more women see this as a real opportunity and don’t reconstruct just because the consequences of *not* doing it are too vast or simply from being afraid of sticking out.
Not only have my situation become easier to handle under these circumstances, getting my article published in Politiken and having my say here on the blog have resulted in a wide array of proposals on different projects to partake in. In one end of the spectrum, something I really look forward to, I have been invited to speak about the perspective of not reconstructing from a patient point of view at a breast cancer convention at Skejby hospital in spring. This is something that I’m really happy about, since this could add to better dialog between the health care system and patients. In the other end of that spectrum, I was asked if I would be interested in being a “page 9 girl” of the tabloid newspaper Ekstra Bladet. They have a “sexy” picture of a girl every day on page 9 and they wanted someone that was missing a breast to collect money for breast cancer and to raise awareness on this cause. The picture would look identical to women appearing there on other days, the point being that you’re equally sexy with or without breasts. This is an idea I fully support and I said I was interested in participating. I loved the idea to show a more diverse picture of sexyness. Only to find out there was another requirement; I needed to wear a wig. .
