The Gregg Shorthand� Fight Against
Breast Cancer Pin
I have always adhered to the philosophy that one should speak and show the truth, because knowledge leads to free will, to choice. If we keep quiet about what cancer does to women's bodies, if we refuse to accept women's bodies in whatever condition they are in, we are doing a disservice to womankind. �Matuschka
The August 15, 1993 NYT cover story by Susan Ferraro,
"The Anguished Politics of Breast Cancer," talks about the history of breast
cancer activism and the goals of current activist organizations and members.
It also provides some useful statistics and a relatively realistic perspective
on breast cancer detection and treatment.

Self-photo of a tattoo applied by Juli Moon, Seabrook, NH to a mastectomy scar. This tattoo was my answer to dealing with the scar I have after a mastectomy. This tattoo was inspired by Deena Metzger. It is a tattoo of pressed flowers which Moon hand drew and then tattooed. I am a two-time, survivor of breast cancer. Doctors love the solution to my scar.--Rhea
