Breast Stories casts a spotlight on an issue that each year touches the lives of many thousands of women in Canada and around the world.

Three years in the making, the project features the stunning portraits and frank personal essays of more than 50 women from British Columbia to Newfoundland and Labrador. Each of the women included in this ground-breaking project is a breast cancer survivor who chose to undergo mastectomy. This definitive collection of portraits and essays will be an essential book for those with any connection to breast cancer, or for anyone interested in psychology, sociology or photography.
