Are you doing Dry July? It's a great initiative - funds raised go to helping people with cancer. "A comfier chair, a brighter waiting room, a lift to an appointment, or a complimentary massage; these are just some of the ways Dry July helps to improve the comfort, care and wellbeing of people affected by cancer." Fabulous! But no... coffee stays ;) #Repost 📷 @sarah.kavanagh_

Mastektomietattoo
Tätowierer: Boris, The Inmost Light, Wiesbaden
Entstanden in 5 Sitzungen.

This mastectomy scar cover up was finished in five sittings by Boris, The Inmost Light, Wiesbaden. The basic design idea of the customer was the yew branches as a symbol for taxol therapy. Her wish is to encourage other breast cancer survivors by showing her tattoo.

#RP from @chrissiescorner - Good morning lovelies and happy Sunday. Today is a very happy Sunday for me as it’s my cancerversary as 3 years ago I finished treatment successfully for breast cancer after having chemotherapy and a mastectomy. Every day is truly a blessing and I’m living my best life and grateful and happy to be here. Over the last 3 years I’ve become a lot more reflective and live in the moment and I don’t like to waste time and energy doing things I dislike and I also love new challenges too. So today I’m just going to chill with my son and enjoy the sun in the garden. Live your best life my lovelies and always check your breasts and general health. Have a lovely day 💕💕💕💕🌸 P.S The bikini comp photo was to show my surgeon that there was hope after he said I would look ok- ish in a bikini after my mastectomy. 😘

Me and my 1 boob were just hanging out, watching the World Cup. I debated heavily on posting this selfie. I don't even know why I took it to begin with...
People just assumed I would want reconstruction right away. "But why didn't you reconstruct right away?!" And other questions such as that. 
I guess I just wanted the cancer the fuck out of my body. I had the option, I just didn't know how I felt about it. Too many things to consider. I wasn't ready. I was overwhelmed.
So here I sit...with my 1 boob 
And I'm OK with that. ❤️

Talking about my upcoming hair transplant (25th July - don’t miss it) at @akacia_medical - shortly how it works, how I came across the opportunity and why. Up on my YOUTUBE as well(Love Pascal Prelog). Swedish subtitle coming!
.
Many transpersons have wrote to me about their fear loosing hair starting testosterone - and also trans persons who have a “natural” production of the hormone as well. Here is an option for solving that (For some people a PRP-treatments is enough). I know all people don’t have the money, but @akacia_medical can help  some with a payment plan, or if you want to do it trough them in Istanbul they can give you a lower price tag. Feel free to ask me questions about my experience!

As the weekend slowly draws to a close its a perfect time to reflect on the success of #therealcatwalk 
All of the models we represent at #zebedeemanagement have a #disability , difficulty or difference, the models that walked in show yesterday are #differentlyabled due to some of the following reasons: limb differences, amputee, mastectomy, wheelchair users, poor mental health, MS, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Brain Haemorrhage, visually impaired and blind. Not one of these models want pity or sympathy they want to be accepted.
I know many took part yesterday for personal reasons, in remembrance of a loved one, to raise awareness, to prove to themselves they could, to celebrate the fact they are ALIVE and are grabbing each and every wonderful opportunity that comes their way with both hands.
Our models are not just models they are role models! MEGA MODELS! They really are simply the best! #zebedeearmy 💕

Today’s #ACFEsurvivorstories features @briannawomick. Here’s something she wrote for herself as a reminder to not give up or be weak, and to still have hope that someone will help her with her career and give her a chance to fulfill the promise she made to her Dad that he will see her on the big screen from Heaven. He died of cancer while she was in the hospital because of cancer. She wrote it on one of her good days and reads it any time she’s having a bad day.
_____________________________________
“Go for that dream, fulfill promises made, work honest and hard, have no regrets, be surrounded by as many animals as possible, and speak my mind with the strength, beauty, and determination that fuels me to live beyond all expectations and surpass my wildest imagination. Live life passionately and feed my soul full of all my desires and wishes with people I love, admire, and respect. Tell them I love them every day and know that nothing in this world is bigger than what I need and want to be at peace with how I live my life at this moment, and who matters to me the most. I will always be found wearing my cowboy boots, getting my hands dirty, drinking a beer, and smiling at the sunset on a horse or with my wolves. This is how I truly live!”

AND if you’re not feeling it, maybe this adorable mug from @nevertoospoiledshop will help!
.
Facing this high risk of breast and ovarian cancer head on was something I knew I HAD to do. I didn’t know I was going to rock it in the way I did. That first surgery I went in with no doubts, with a fire... after infection issues and complications I definitely needed this little cup of courage in my life.
.
Now on the other side of breast surgeries I look back and I’m shocked by the things I went through and how I didn’t let them stop me. 💪🏻
.
We all need a little courage boost and someone cheering you on from time to time. This is my cheer to you! You’ve got this!

Belle of the Ball. This has to be one of my most favourite makes.

When I feel better I am looking forward to getting the sewing machine back out. 
This is a #cosplay recreation of the dress from the Live Action remake of Beauty and The Beast. Emma Watson @emmawatson wore this gown in the famous ballroom dance scene. #emmawatson #beautyandthebeast #disney 
When I feel better my next dress to create is Rapunzel.  Chemo sucked so much energy and the pins and needles stopped my fingers moving properly so I couldn't cut or sew. I'm recovering now so I should start fabric hunting.

These are my sister's words but I wholeheartedly echo the truth and hope of them 💓 "When I learned I couldn’t breastfeed past our first child, I began my journey researching gut health. I so badly wanted to supply my kids with the lifelong advantages I knew formula couldn’t give them. 😢 (#csection and #antibiotics are also linked to future health issues and poor immunity.) Those 👇🏼👇🏼 little kiddo vitamin/probiotics right there were an answer to prayer for this momma. And I bet they could be for you too. 🙌🏼💕 Gut health is at the root of allergies, skin irritations, autoimmune challenges, behavioral troubles, mood, and countless other common struggles. Know any little ones battling those demons? Cuz I know too many. The good news is supplementing and replenishing their little tummies early with the right enzymes and probiotics is such an EASY answer... the bad news is most people have no clue about the connection. I want to invite you to fall in love with the products that have blessed my kids, or your money back. I can tell you EVERY reason they’re better than what’s at your drugstore... but more than that I’m here to listen, walk with you, and search for answers with you. Let’s talk soon."

Hey breasties, 
I've been on a health kick since coming home from Samoa and Sydney. Now, well into #dryJuly I'm exercising everyday and things have been pretty quiet but today I shared my first story in a while and noticed I have 100 new followers since I last logged in! That's amazing! 
Welcome to the documentation of my experience with preventative surgery which is taking on a lifestyle bent and a healthy one at that! I live mostly over on my travel page @aussiebroadabroad which has over 3K of followers and I don't usually celebrate little milestones like this but here, in this community, I feel it's important to do so. 
When I first started planning my preventative surgery in the form of a nipple sacrificing, skin sparing, double mastectomy with direct implants, I was eager to find and connect with people who had been through the same thing in order to help me manage my expectations and understand the gravity of that which I was about to undertake. I have tried to be as transparent as possible without being too graphic but I am working on some before, during and after posts that I hope you won't find too confronting. Having documented in detail my time in hospital (see my story highlights), I am fully healed but still on the road to recovery. At the moment I am working on losing the weight I gained during my recuperation in order to more accurately asses whether or not a revision surgery is required. The anchor shaped scars that now adorn my nippleless mounds have healed nicely but under my arms they have enveloped or 'dog-earred,' creating pointy puckers just below my armpits. 
My surgeon thinks he can fix this with a small revision or even liposuction (all of which would be covered by my care plan) but as my upper body is where I tend to carry most of my weight, I think diet and exercise will go a long way toward resolving this. Once I am back to my normal weight of 60kg I will asses whether further intervention is needed. 
In the meantime I am yet to decide what other cosmetic measures I might like to take...do I want 3D tattooed areolas? With pea-sized subdermal implants for nipples? Or do I want something else like small pink flesh coloured hearts where
Hey breasties, I've been on a health kick since coming home from Samoa and Sydney. Now, well into #dryJuly  I'm exercising everyday and things have been pretty quiet but today I shared my first story in a while and noticed I have 100 new followers since I last logged in! That's amazing! Welcome to the documentation of my experience with preventative surgery which is taking on a lifestyle bent and a healthy one at that!

Good morning lovelies and happy Sunday. Today is a very happy Sunday for me as it’s my cancerversary as 3 years ago I finished treatment successfully for breast cancer after having chemotherapy and a mastectomy. Every day is truly a blessing and I’m living my best life and grateful and happy to be here. Over the last 3 years I’ve become a lot more reflective and live in the moment and I don’t like to waste time and energy doing things I dislike and I also love new challenges too. So today I’m just going to chill with my son and enjoy the sun in the garden. Live your best life my lovelies and always check your breasts and general health. Have a lovely day 💕💕💕💕🌸 P.S The bikini comp photo was to show my surgeon that there was hope after he said I would look ok- ish in a bikini after my mastectomy. 😘☺️ #birminghaminbloom

Grateful for time spent with family. Mom and I were in South Orange County today. It felt great to walk the grounds at one of our favorite places. We enjoyed lunch without worrying if it would make my stomach nauseous. We went shopping and scored fun summer outfits. What a gift it is to be well enough to enjoy mom’s company outside my neighborhood and the treatment center. 💗

THE best thing about this wonderful community is the connections, the people that might never have come into your life.
.
Michelle told me she would be in #Philly this week and we made plans to meet up. I’d met this lovely lady the night of Galentine’s as I sobbed in front of a room full of strangers. We’ve both lost our Mothers and are trying to figure out how to live life after.
.
Well here is how... you surround yourself with awesome people. Like people who invite you to jump in on their hard to get reservation at @zahavrestaurant in Philadelphia. People whose friends are amazing and welcoming and accept this stranger into their girls evening!
.
Life after loss, life after surgery, life after... it’s not easy. Old Mackenzie would have stayed holed up in her apartment versus joining new people at a tapas restaurant. New Mackenzie knows life is too short not to get out and experience life. My current experience is meeting SO many wonderful people... and eating tons of AMAZING foods! @mr1381 😘

I had done some reading about  the lymphatic system before surgery, but didn’t think much of it because most people who had lymphatic side effects from mastectomy were patients who also had chemo or radiation. It was especially rare to have any lymphedema in places other than the arms where some lymphnoids might have to be removed.  So after my second surgery when I told my doctor I thought I was getting swollen and was super uncomfortable after activities and mentioned I thought it was lymphedema, he said “Nah, you’re fine. You look like your slouching in the second photo.” I. Was. NOT. slouching. I suffered with these symptoms and feeling uncomfortable for another 6 months. It wasn’t until I met with my physical therapist a few months ago that my suspicions were confirmed. She told me I wasn’t crazy, it was definitely lymphedema and we would do our best to work on it. I cried. 
The mirror selfie is me when I woke up and then me an hour later after doing light yoga. So much fluid trapped in there! #knowyourbody #advocateforyourhealth #breastcancerawareness #breasties #physicaltherapy #lymphedema #mastectomy #brca2 #brca2positive #preventativemastectomy #previvor #lymphaticsystem #PT

3D areola healed.
3D areola healed.
You suffered a lot, I know
You've been through many things that no one knows
It made you cry
It made you weak
It made you lay on bed all day
Hoping when you wake up it's all gone 
But despite all of those, you survived
Yes it's still there ---
But you're fighting
Keeping the faith
Making the best out of yourself

I love this beautiful image of @wildfire_bc_magazine and our #FLATAF tee, side by side 😍 Thanks, @catherinemguthrie for this pretty view! 💖 FYI: Catherine is a talented women's health journalist who has written several articles on being flat (and many other things). She even wrote the first article that *I* ever personally read and saw of a flat woman, and her perspective and introduction of a beautiful flat role model to me, @bethfairchild, most certainly played a role in my decision to go flat. She has her own book coming out soon called FLAT (of which I've already ordered a pre-copy) and I've totally been #fangirling because we're collaborating on a project together 😍 Stay tuned for more information about that! You can preorder Catherine's book by clicking the link in her bio: @catherinemguthrie 💖

One of my FAVORITE things to do is discover new places to have brunch! If you know anything about me, it’s that I LOVE me some Eggs Benedict on a Saturday... when they brought out my plate I screamed out “FOOBS!” I feel like my favorite meal has a whole new meaning to it now (•)(•) Have a mimosa with someone you love this weekend, let go of the stress, and remember what’s important. Who knew brunch would be so therapeutic? 😂💕🙈 Shoutout to @pushkinsrestaurant !

I was just going through my phone and some old texts and came across this photo from my first day of chemo.
.
My first/ immediate thought was “Wow, I’ve changed so much since then.”
.
I see a young naive girl, terrified but smiling anyway.
.
I see a girl who thought she was strong, but had no idea what that truly meant quite yet.
.
I see a girl who thought this would be a short bump in the road, with no idea how having cancer truly alters your entire life.
.
I thought I had it all figured out— I didn’t. I thought I didn’t need anyone’s help— I did. I knew I had great people in my life— but had no idea to what capacity.
.
And I’m so thankful for those lessons. I’ve become a better person because of them.
.
I love a lot deeper now. And more freely. (Get your mind out of the gutter, ya hussies— this isn’t the 60’s anymore 😂)
.
I’ve stopped making excuses for those who do not deserve to be in my life, and have become content with saying goodbye to people and things that no longer add value to my life.
.
I’ve learned that no job is worth missed time with the ones you love, and any boss who asks that of you on a frequent basis truly doesn’t care about YOU at all— just what they can get out of you. (Shoutout to that laptop on my lap— who works during their first chemo session??)
.
And I’ve learned, time and time again, that you can make a million and one plans for your life, your year, even your day— but God’s timing is the only timing and our plans don’t hold a candle next to His. .
Resiliency and faith carry you a long way.
.
While having cancer is obviously the worst thing I’ve ever had to endure, I truly am thankful for the person I am now and the unexpected change in my life’s trajectory. I have no idea what my life is going to look like this time next year, but I know it’ll be better than what I could have ever planned for myself.

I’m really not one to complain and I have a prettyyyy high pain tolerance.. but my god, me and my skin are overrrrr this. I’ve never in my life wanted to claw my skin off my body like I want to right now. I still have 8 treatments to go, luckily the last 5 being more targeted so it will give my burnt spots a break. ☢️ #RadationTherapy #BreastCancerAwareness #ImASurvivor  #TripleNegativeBreastCancer #RadationBurns #Mastectomy #LifeAfterCancer #CancerSucks #FuckCancer #Ouch

In her signature she said, “Page 250 is for you”, so I immediately jumped to that page, where she talks about areola and nipple tattooing as an option for breast cancer patients post mastectomy..Still crying happy tears! 😭
.
A huge and heart felt THANK YOU to Dr. Funk for acknowledging the important work that life has chosen for me. I am so blessed and grateful to have amazing mentors and many others I’ve tagged in this post who constantly inspire me on this journey in giving survivors the best results possible 🌸🌸

I love this book and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for facts and strategies to help them understand their breasts, reduce their cancer risk and discover life-changing interventions and treatments after being diagnosed with the disease.

Happy Saturday and happy reading everyone! 🎀

I finally like what I see in the mirror. Years  of dysphoria what almost broke me more than once, are over. I'm so damn glad for that. Dysphoria is not completely passed, I still have some hard days though but I'm so much happier. I love my chest and my scars even if I need to do a correction surgery and of this year (or beginning of next year... We will see). I enjoy being shirtless because now I can 😏💪 #ftm #becomingwhoiam#thatswhattranslookslike #proud #transisbeautiful #bodypositivity #selflove #mastectomy #mirror #mirrorselfie #trans #pride

Along with providing world-class breast reconstruction, we also offer patients the option to have their procedure at the time of mastectomy, also known as Immediate Reconstruction. This removes the need for a second major operation and allows for only one period of recovery. Start your journey to recovery with us 💖

Day 3 
Six drains. They’re not bothering me too much. I’m home, feeling relatively well. Once I got pain managed and my nausea subsided, things have been better. #mastectomy #previvor #brca #brca #prophylacticmastectomy

Thank you so much @knitknockersuk for my knitted boob!! This amazing #charity knit knockers for women who have gone through lumpectomy or mastectomy surgery. I love this as the original prosthetic I was given is so heavy, so this is a lovely lightweight option. It was beautifully packaged too! It came with love hearts and a little knitted flower!! 😍🌼 I don't actually know who knitted mine, someone called Margaret I'm guessing, so thank you, very kind!! 😊 #knitknockers #boobinsert #mastectomy

Feeling the love. Got some beautiful flowers delivered from @9erkat132 yesterday. So much fun to watch them bloom!! Having a cheering section means the world to me. #myfriendsrock #tulipsaremyfav #flowers #beautiful #fuckcancer #DCIS #mastectomy #bedrest #igotthis #noonefightsalone
