Woman With Breast Cancer Bravely Posted Photo That Could Save Your Life
Most women know the obvious symptoms of breast cancer, like finding a lump in the breast or rapid changes in size or shape.
But, there are some more subtle symptoms that can be just as important to making a breast cancer diagnosis, and one mother recently shared a photograph of her breast on Facebook this week to alert others to the signs.
The picture shows a slight dimple on the underside of Lisa Royle's left breast.
The 42-year-old mother shared the photo last week before getting a mastectomy; since then, it's been shared tens of thousands of times.
Captioning the photo, Royle wrote,
Her post received a staggering amount of support, and Royle received praise from various organizations, including the Breast Cancer Care charity.
Jackie Harris, a spokesperson for Breast Cancer Care, said,
Royle's sister, Claire Osmond, set up a Share A Gift fundraiser page to pay for medical care, a wig, post-op bras and a Florida vacation for the strong, deserving mother.
Ladies, remember to check your breasts once a month and visit the doctor if anything seems odd. With cancer, it's much better to be safe than sorry.
