Mum shares a raw photograph of herself in the hopes of bringing awareness to the impact of breast cancer.
In 2013 Kimi Maxwell, from Perth, Australia, was diagnosed with breast cancer while pregnant with her second child.
The mum had a double mastectomy while still pregnant in the hopes of beating the cancer, and then posed for a celebratory photoshoot when she did, reports Daily Mail.
The cancer survivor posted with her arms raised and biceps flexed, with the words ‘I survived’ written on her chest.
An arrow was draw on pointing to her pregnant belly, and the words ‘So did I,’ written on it.
The photo, which is a stunning sepia shot, was taken by photographer Nikki Fisher Holmes.
‘I took this photo of Kimi when she was pregnant and had been battling breast cancer…she wanted to bare all to raise awareness.’
Ms Maxwell, who is currently almost finished with reconstructive surgery and is in remission, commented on the post about how grateful she was for the photoshoot.
‘Huge thanks to Nikki Fisher Holmes for doing her part for all the ladies and their journeys,’ the mum said.
‘You had me almost naked and feeling safe, respected and beautifully captured my message. The ultimate in professional photography I feel. Anything you do from your gorgeous heart is a masterpiece.’
So raw and inspiring. Such an important message to spread.
