(Warning Graphic Images) A breast cancer survivor has posted her severe reactions to radiation treatment on Tumblir as a way to to show people the reality of cancer treatment and call out #nobraday campaigns. She included “Here’s your f#$king breast cancer awareness.” Jen Alter did a 25 day radiation treatment.
“Breast cancer isn’t sexy. It’s not about saving the boobies. It’s not about no bra day, which is really just an excuse for women to post sexy pics of their nipples pressing through their clothes. It’s scars, nausea, pain, bald heads, burnt skin, and broken hearts,”
She really wants to use her images to shock people into understanding that breast cancer isn’t just about pink ribbons.
From her Tumber,pushing the pin.
I just wanted to say I’m glad you shared your experience. I’ve never seen that side of cancer before and it sounds horrible. I’m so glad you won your fight with breast cancer and that you’re with us today to share your story. I hope you continue to spread awareness because it needs to be heard from survivors like you. I hope there’s a cure one day I really do.
