Life And Looks, Post-Mastectomy

Dec 16, 2015

We've gotten past the point where we think of breast removal surgery after cancer as a disfigurement.  Or have we? 


Ashland nurse Katelyn Carey wants to make sure we have, with her recently published book Beauty After Breast Cancer.

The coffee-table book features glossy photographs of bare-chested women (and one man) displaying the surgical options for breast cancer patients, so people know what their bodies will look like. 

Carey's own experience kindled the project; she visits the studio with details.
