My dear friend, the "other" Sarah. This is her story.
There are thousands of people living with cancer who don't get the support they need because they don't look like cancer patients. These people suffer in silence and often feel as though they don’t have the right to ask for help, especially when they don’t look “sick.” Naked Cancer is a place to share the hidden things cancer does to our bodies and our lives. It is a creative space to tell your story through the use of self-portraiture. It is an opportunity to be bold, to be brave, and to get naked for cancer.
"Cancer destroyed my vision. It scarred my body inside and out. It removed any choice I might have one day made to have children. It has infiltrated my blood and reminds me daily of its advances. There is no cure for my cancer. There are no effective long-term treatments for my cancer. And because chemo doesn't work on my cancer, I don't even look sick. In fact, you'd never know I have cancer unless I took my clothes off and told you I have cancer."
