103 People Unfriended Her, I wonder how many would do the same to me

I came across a post that read When Beth Posted These Images on Facebook, 103 People Unfriended Her I was baffled … Since the headline caught my attention and naturally I read the story.. The story really gave a very deep cut in my heart .. I’m unable to bring myself up from the wounds the story gave … Okay, here the story goes …

Beth Whaanga did something audacious … I wonder how many of us have the courage to do what she did … She did something very courage, something extraordinary.. I’m lost with words here …

She took off her clothes for a project she and her friend Nadia Mascot are doing.. BethThey are calling the project  Under The Red Dress. You guys wonder what’s so important here ..?? This project is to cause awareness / educate about Breast Cancer… In a word, we often come across so many people in our daily life.. Have we ever wondered what story each of them have ..?? No … Under their bodies, there would’ve been so many stories hidden with their clothing …

So Beth’s story is that she was diagnosed with breast cancer and undergone double mastectomy and a total hysterectomy … Those photos of Beth’s – I’ve been staring at them .. Everything the photo presented was the traumatic aftermath of the cancer treatment.. But what I saw was the daringness of a lovely lady. I’ve never seen such a strong, determined fighter in my life .. Her pictures and their project endeavors to share a pictorial story to inform and support anyone who has or may be affected by breast cancer.

I found the project amazing effort.. But rather than the project, it was those 103 friends who stayed longer in my mind.. Her friends who unfriended her found these photos inappropriate or pornographic I think…

Breast cancer is one among commonly diagnosed cancer in women … I wish to tell to those 103 people to look back at Beth and to re-gain the reality of life …
