Photographer Shares Lumpectomy Story; 17 Book Photos Show Changing Breast Surgery Demographics

Here’s the link to Kathleen Galligan’s moving story about her breast cancer diagnosis, reprinted in today’s Detroit Free Press. The newspaper’s web site,, also uses 17 photos  (second link) of the wonderful women in “Breast Cancer Surgery and Reconstruction: What’s Right for You.” Kathleen’s photos truly brought the book to life and her story is one thousands of women will identify with. It explains how all cancer, even early, less problematic ones, are traumatic. I hope Kathleen and all women with breast cancer are showered in love, support and respect today.

Author’s note: The spotlight isn’t my happy place. I’m very private. Or was.
