Woman Captures Her Mastectomy Pictures In A Creative Way

Cancer is a persistent & depressive disease that breaks you down mentally, physically & emotionally. Cancer is a struggle & requires a long-term process for the treatment. Many a times, cancer is not detected in the initial stages due to lack of symptoms. It is harder to cure cancer if it is discovered at an advanced stage.

These creative photos are shared by 32-year-old Aniela McGuinness, who was detected with breast cancer before three days of her appointment for preventive mastectomy in order to avoid breast cancer.
