Welcome Nipples

Last month saw my 7th surgery, Its been four and a half years now and I am finally becoming the new me.

Long voyage but doing great. I still have the tattooing and scar removal to come so just imagine then. I can move on and not ever have to see those scars.

Cancer takes alot away but it cant take my optimism ever.....I will survive
