    Que linda la forma de renacer, que hermosa la forma en que el arte hace renacer el gusto por nuestro propio cuerpo siendo un sello orgulloso de nuestra identidad. Felicitaciones!

Silke: "I always tried to walk the way through the disease in my own shoes, going my own way accompanied by my husband, family and friends. I decided to tell the cancer "you don´t have to come back again!...your place is already occupied!" in a special way. There was no need to cover the scars. Inspite of all that happened, look at this, I´m still alive and feeling fine and greatful at every single day. So at last a bad thing turned out to be a good piece of art." [p-ink.org]

    @FAMILIA FIRST This is amazing. Keep us posted on your journey and experience.

    I understand about the amazing women you meet on this journey. i just recently joined some Facebook support groups and have a real bond with some of the ladies I communicate with on a regular basis. I am 2 weeks away from getting rid of my coobs (concrete boobs/expanders) for my squishies (implants) and I can not wait! I have no desire to go through nipple reconstruction so this may be my last reconstruction surgery. I'm so glad I found P.ink as I've said from day 1 that I wanted to do something beautiful instead of nipples. I love the idea of turning ugly scars into beautiful artwork. I'm not sure what I want yet but I have plenty of time to decide.

  • Michele Artman

    I agree totally Danielle! Good luck with your swap (coobs, love it!)! I hope it all goes smoothly for you.
