I am sure, as with most of my articles, this article is sure to get many backs up. However, I do want to express my opinion. There are thousands of women world-wide who have been forced to have their breasts removed as a result of cancer – they have been forced to do so in order to SAVE THEIR LIVES. Not done on an thoughtless whim. Except, perhaps, for those who do not have excess funds available for breast reconstruction after lifesaving surgery, her actions may yield a feeling of melancholy as they look in the mirror at their flat chests and scars which truly do say “I AM A SURVIVOR”.
