Actress Just Destroyed Every Mastectomy Stereotype With Creative Photos

#MyBreastChoice

Before actress Aniela McGuinness had her double mastectomy, she created a photo series called My Breast Choice to cope with and show a lighter side to this important medical procedure.

"The year before my diagnosis with cancer, my mother pass away from Ovarian Cancer and I saw how soul crushing this disease could be," McGuinness told A Plus in an email. "As I faced my mastectomy, this series gave me something playful to look forward to while pushing me to create images that showed the joy and humor that could coexist in tragedy."

Here are four powerful and humorous photos that might change the way you think of a mastectomy:
