What is Breastflower's mission?
As a pioneer in the field of breast jewels, Breastflower hopes to start breaking the negative atmosphere surrounding mastectomy and breast cancer. Generally, mastectomy is not openly discussed. It is sometimes seen as weird, negative, or even scary, while we should emphasize our strength, femininity, and self-confidence after conquering breast cancer! Breastflower wants to bring in a new sound by collecting and sharing stories of inspiration, pride and optimism with women having undergone mastectomy. Start reading these stories here!
Why is a new sound regarding mastectomy important?
Mastectomy without reconstruction is not always seen as a fully-fledged option. Women undergoing a mastectomy often find that their environment tacitly assumes they will opt for an internal prosthesis. This affects their decision-making process. Afterwards, some of them feel that they have made the choice for a reconstruction too quickly, without having carefully considered other options. By raising awareness for mastectomy without reconstruction, Breastflower hopes to contribute to alleviating the pressure and prejudice surrounding this subject. As a result, women may feel freer to decide based on their own feelings when they are faced with the choice.
