P.ink day - tattoos for mastectomy ladies

Posted on

Hi everyone!  It's a lovely sunny morning here in Sussex and I am sitting here with Fleetwood Mac on and a cup of coffee :) 

I just want to take a few minutes to pass on this lovely article that I came across on Twitter.  I have talked to a lot of breast cancer survivors through the years and it's certainly true that everyone moves forward with their life after a mastectomy or lumpectomy in a different way.  

In this article on a breast cancer site, a lady called Molly Ortwein has chosen to move on by tatooing over her scars.  You can watch her lovely inspirational story on the page here.

 

She is in the US and the tattoo studio that helped her has now started a lovely new project across the US. One day every year, the 10th of October, they encourage mastectomy ladies to come in and get a tattoo of their choice, across their scars or somewhere else, in a supportive environment.  It's a wonderful idea and a wonderful story.  The P.ink project as it's called is in it's second year this year and going from strength to strength.  Their lovely video is also simply wonderful and well worth a watch.

It seems such a wonderful idea and would be an excellent event to have here in the UK don't you think?
