Re: The Scar Project: Breast Cancer is Not a Pink Ribbon

The book: https://www.amazon.com/SCAR-Project-...e+SCAR+Project

The SCAR Project: Breast cancer Is Not a Pink ribbon. Volume I is 126 pages and contains 50 portraits of young breast cancer survivors, as well as an autobiographical sketch by each woman, describing her experience with breast cancer. The SCAR Project is an exhibition of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women. Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 who will be diagnosed this year alone The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection and healing. The mission is three-fold: to raise public awareness of early-onset breast cancer, to raise funds for breast cancer research/outreach programs and to help young survivors see their scars, faces, figures and experiences through a new, honest and ultimately, empowering lens. Wall Street Journal: "Ambling along a New York street, a poster grabbed me by the throat. A young woman with a mastectomy scar and pregnant. "Breast Cancer is Not a Pink Ribbon," it said. And, of course, they are right." Psychology Today: "An incredibly moving and thought provoking work." British Medical Journal: "It haunted me . . . a photographic exhibition, The SCAR Project: Surviving Cancer, Absolute Reality. They got me. And it will get you too." AOL: "Powerful Images of Young Survivors."? Le Post France: "Through his photographs, David Jay shows (finally!) the true reality of cancer."
