You don't need breasts to be sexy! (breast cancer survivor)

Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought it was only
fitting for this to be my first post of the month.
Remember to do self breast
exams (and mammograms for those 35 and older) on a regular basis!

I had the honor of meeting the amazing Miss S in St. Louis.
This woman radiates beauty and strength and is just awesome to be around.
She's a breast cancer survivor and is only 37 years old
and the mother of 2 small children.

Getting these photos done was a big step for her and
was part of her healing process. I'm so proud of her for doing this, even if we
were both in tears at one point.
I look up to this woman more than words can say.


When I asked Miss S if she had anything she'd like to say to the other
women out there, this is what she said...

"Embrace your body. Let no one or no thing make you
believe you are less of a person, a woman, or a human being.
You are irreplaceable."
