Pink Heart by IllustratedEye Pink Heart by IllustratedEye
Submission for PiNKiTUDE

In 2006 my mom calls me and tells me she's going into the hospital. She tells me she has "IT". The dreaded BC word. I was in the mall. I remember stopping dead in my tracks in fear. My mom tells me they want to remove her breast and that she worries about her nipples. her nipples for gosh sake. I tell her it's better that than her life. I have to say that as one of the most scaryest phone calls in my life.

The research done in the past and in the future has saved her life. She is alive. She has new boobs, but she's still alive and with me and us.

I love you mom.

- the image was manipluated. I removed the hearts covering her nipple to give increased effect of not having one. Model is Allison

Nice one! Somehow nipple-less thing didn't bother me, it just seemed logical. Somehow I like how you presented breast cancer - even if you lose a nipple, you're still sexy. :D :love:

Awh, that's a sad story.

I love the photo.
This is an artistic nude, which generally needs the nude.
I love it :)

That's terrifying. I hope she's recovering well. - The manipulation on the boobie was a neat idea too.

I love this - and there is a touching story behind it, which makes it all the more better.

I know how it is to know someone so close to have something so threatening... many of my mom's friends have had breast cancer, and thank god they're all survivors.

My prayers for all cancer patients.

Well done! I encourage all women to get exams on a regular basis. Hopefully they will find a cure but early detection is the key right now!

hopefully! but yah early detection means soo much. i'm still amazed how many women die from breast cancer still even with medicine as it is today. Women are so scared of it. Our breasts mean so much to us.
