    Hey Claudia! Me again! So, after watching this webisode, I so wished that I had thought to do this. I can honestly say that I do not remember in any way what my “natural” form looks like. I have found myself looking at pictures on numerous occasions, just trying to zero in and see what my cleavage looks like lol! As you know, my surgeries are all done, so too late for that! But, just two weeks ago, I did a photo shoot. I didnt completely understand what the photos would look like or what the photographer was going for, until I saw the finished product. It is a nude photograph, but you cant see anything you shouldnt lol. Kind of sitting up in the fetal position with my head on my knees, and he hung my Pink-Surance dog tag on my neck dangling to the side, so it is clearly visible. Looking at it, I was still nervous over the fact that I was nude, I wasnt seeing the meaning right away. But, he explained to me that that one photo meant more than any he had ever taken. In his words…”what woman is stronger than that”? When he said that, I got it. My scar is visible by about a centimeter or two (of course that stuck out to me). He said he could photoshop it if I really wanted, but that he thought it was what made the picture. The scar is a part of me, that I am now proud of. Battle wounds that led to a VICTORY! I plan to go public with the photos. My photographer is actually working with me on a campaign to offer before and after shoots to other Previvors, with a portion being donated to the cause. Would never have gotten to this if you had not posted this webisode, so thank you! I think that for those who want to do this, it is so important to have…even if only for yourself.
