I'm Taking Charge: Reflections on Going Flat: Whole Without Breasts

Flat & Fabulous: Post-Surgical Reflections

All too often, we play a seemingly endless loop of negative thoughts. Critical messages aimed at ourselves.

The good news is, even when this negative inner critic is ingrained in our subconscious, we can re-train ourselves to replace these messages with more positive ones.

The Breast and the Sea

A written and photographic project for and about breast cancer survivors, with photographer, Miana Jun.

The Breast and the Sea empowers breast cancer survivors, previvors, and patients in the process of emotional healing sharing our journeys through reflective, nature-based workshops. Gatherings involve community support, movement practices, and photographic witnessing; deepening participant connections to themselves and the environment.

I am so grateful for Rebecca and her strength as a survivor to move beyond her own pain and reach out to others, determined to help them become comfortable with their bodies and scars, to find acceptance, to help them become part of a community and to most importantly …to HEAL.
