Some women are opting to “go flat” after a mastectomy — choosing not to have breast reconstruction for a variety of reasons, including the desire to just be done with surgery. For many, it’s a bold decision that flies in the face of convention. “A lot of us women are sticking together and helping each other through this journey of being this new look,” says artist and survivor, Marianne Cuozzo. “We’re trying to make it so that it’s not this stigma.”
I love you all, beautiful shining stars!
