How I would feel by petrova How I would feel by petrova
Photo on model and worked with in photoshop cs2.

When I saw the contest I started to think what breast cancer is for me. How would I react on getting the news. Probably I would be more religious (find a god?) and my first thought would be that I don't want to loose my breasts. Because without my breasts I would feel like a tiny, short boy before puberty. Or maybe as a drag queen that tries to be a woman but doesn't really make it to the line. I usually don't think about my breasts but for once I did and realised that they're a part of who you are when you're a woman. Clothes are sown accordingly, cleavages are made, bras being bought... It's like a whole world.

So, who would I be without them?

Then my mind took me one step longer. Life. Even if it would mean loosing my breasts I want to live and would do anything to do so... half, one, both, whatever it takes. But I hope science soon will come to a break through in breast cancer. And if my mum, step-mum, little sister, friends or even I get the news don't need to worry about our identity as a woman, about life... just get help to recover.

For breast cancer awareness.
ps. Not only women can get breast cancer.
