I discovered this on my Facebook page with the message that Facebook had been deeming the photo unacceptable and removing it. I couldn’t figure out why.It just looked like a beautiful tattoo.
When I read on, tears came to my eyes. Bravo to this woman.
The text that accompanied the picture was this: “This is the photo that Facebook keeps taking down and keeps disappearing from all pages including comments. See if we can keep it going.This woman has this tattoo to cover mastectomy scars. I think it is beautiful and brave. What is so offensive Facebook”
I think it is beautiful and brave too. If it turns out not to be true, I still think it is a brilliant idea.
In vain, I have googled and searched in an attempt to find the source of this photograph.
This is the only link I could find. If any of you know more about it, please let me know.
Since it was on Facebook, I figure it will be fine to post here. If it isn’t, I imagine I will hear about it.
If you are as touched as I am by this, please pass it on and pause for a moment to honour every single woman whose life has been touched by breast cancer. Then, please drop by the Facebook page for the Canadian Breast Cancer Support Fund and give it a “like”. It feels appropriate. Thanks!
