10 Year Mastectomy Anniversary


Today, January 7, 2024, is my 10 year mastectomy anniversary! I’ll add more to the post soon, but for now, I want to share some fun self-portraits! I took these in my home studio two days ago. Special thank you to my dear friend, Courtney Hochman, who gifted me the awesome crocheted boobies!

Learn more about my experiences with this 10 Year Mastectomy Anniversary video.

I’ve included self portraits documenting my decade long journey since my mastectomy on January 7, 2014. Please be aware that there are some sensitive post-surgical images included. No images from this blog post or video may be shared without written permission from photographer, Tammy Karin.

I’ve written several blog posts about my mastectomy journey.
My most recent mastectomy blog can be found here where I celebrate the benefits of going flat!
