Original - Gift to Mother
Inspired by my mom, a breast cancer survivor. When I asked her if she was going to get reconstructive surgery after her mastectomy, she said something to the effect of, "Why? I'm 60 years old, I don't have to worry about silly things like boobs anymore, I'm too busy dealing with this cancer thing." I don't think she realized what a strong statement that was to me. Why do any of us have to worry about our boobs anymore, cancer or not?! With this piece I am exploring my own relationship with the ladies and wondering why I spend so much time worrying about them.
