Kristina Hunter, a college professor, and ML Kenneth, artist and photographer, teamed up to create a book of portraits featuring women who have undergone a wide scope of breast cancer surgeries. They say that the book, titled “Woman: Redefined
” will feature women’s words as well as their photographs with the anecdotes exploring how the subjects feel about their bodies and what their experience with cancer has been like, all to give a sense of hope to anyone affected by breast cancer. Here’s what they said will try to convey and cover in their book.
1. All women going through breast cancer should see a future for themselves. Should see that they are and will continue to be more than the disease. That they are whole, beautiful and perfect.
2. “Why keep secret? Should we not embrace our new bodies? Doesn’t the unfamiliar become the norm by seeing it?”
3. You are not alone, and your bodies will still be works of art even after whatever procedures your treatment may require.
4. Sharing the imperfectly beautiful bodies, inspiring stories and hearts will help change how people feel about beauty and life.
5. Cancer has taught many to not take life for granted. And with this, many will teach many how to LIVE. Know about breast cancer to prevent it.
