    Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do with this project. It is a beautiful thing for me to not only see the strength and courage within each and every bc survivor but to know that I am part of this beauty too.

    I am so grateful to have this opportunity to be a part of this project. I am 28 and just completed my first year of being a breast cancer survivor. I found strength within myself I didnt know I had. I admire all of the strong survivors out there for your courage. Congrats to us all

    I was honored to have had the privilege of participating in this amazing project. The experience was transcendental for me... it gave me a newfound strength; it transformed me in a way that is difficult to express into words. When I was battling breast cancer, I felt like the disease was stealing bits of me every day. As Keegan painted this amazing cosmic landscape onto me, I began to watch my scarred body turn into a thing of beauty. And as Michael was shooting the photos I began to realize that cancer didn't steal my beauty, and that it could never tarnish my soul. I will be forever grateful to Keegan and Michael for giving me the opportunity to participate in this incredible project.

    When I first met Michael via Facebook and through my ex-husband's nephew, we began chatting about things in life that has lead us to where we are today. I told Michael that I am a breast cancer survivor and author to a book The Empty Cup Runneth Over. The rest is history. As lead model and project corner stone to BCABPP, I am honored to be part of an amazing project that will help inspire so many other breast cancer survivors. Special thanks to Michael for his compassion and talent helping all survivors as well as to Keegan Hitchcock who painted my body on that early morning in May. As the paint hit my body I thought back to the day I was wheeled into the operating room knowing that I would be loosing my breats for every. It is through this fantastic project (BCABPP) that I know "There is life after breast cancer."

    I Just want to share what I wrote to Michael the day after the paiting and shooting ... Michael I could never thank you enough for letting me be part of the project … since the first time we wrote to each other there was no doubt in my mind that this was a good idea, but to be honest I saw it more like “what can I do to help others”, it never occurred to me that it could be so empowering to the women that are lucky enough to be part of it … Watching Doris “walk” the road yesterday made me realize the struggle she is going through, even nine years after, and watching her raising over her fears, holding her sister’s hand, was priceless to me, and allowed me to enjoy what I was doing, not only for others, but for me too. When Keegan brought out the warrior inside me, I was simply happy.
    Your team is just amazing, needless to say your talents as artists are too. I had a great day, not only for the project itself, but because I spent it with loving, caring and involved people ...

    This is truly a magnificent project. I never thought that photography and art could be used in this way until now.
