Once upon a time, women who have survived cancer will tell you, the fact that you’d been through the horror of a diagnosis and surgery was not public information—not at work and certainly not on a first date.Flash forward to 2016 and, experts say, there’s a very different attitude.I said, ' Teaching moment: This is a tattooed aureole, and this is a reconstructed nipple.' And he was like, ' Cool! I get called fearless, but I’m not: Part of the reason I’m searching for a partner is that I fear my cancer will recur and I’ll end up alone, without someone by my side. It took me a long time to love and be comfortable with how I look.So now that I am, my attitude is, ' F--k it, this is me.

' And then I showed him a topless picture that I’d taken after my surgery.

I think people are attracted to my survivor story because it gives me confidence.

Before being intimate with someone, I’ll show him my breasts in a nonsexual way.

I got an MRI as a precaution, and it revealed a stage I tumor.

In two insane years I’ve had a double mastectomy; harvested my eggs; been through chemo and tamoxifen and in and out of depression and menopause; had my hair fall out and grow back; and had reconstruction that resulted in perfect, hard breasts with no nipples and amazing side boob. My body doesn’t function the way it did, but I’m more patient with it.
