Today I cast a lady who has been having treatment for breast cancer. The next step is a double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery.
I feel very honoured to have been able to do this and hope it helps in a small way.
I have sent her photos of the cast, she is really pleased and was very happy for me to share these photos.
Before we did the cast she spoke about how she had felt very cross with her breasts for making her ill and said she couldn’t even look at them when she was first diagnosed. After chemotherapy the next step was a mastectomy, and the realisation that she would look down and they would be gone suddenly hit her. She had been thinking of taking some photos of her breasts so she could remember how they were but actually having casting of them felt more comforting “Having this cast done has helped me say goodbye to my boobs”
I wish her the best of luck with her surgery and a speedy recovery.
