Baring It All

As most of you know from reading my blog, my sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer back in February.  I have another friend, Marcy, who was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago as a very young, vibrant mom.

Marcy has been featured in a new series on the Style network called Exposed.  Her episode of Exposed is Baring It All.  This episode featured the SCAR Project.  This Pulitzer Prize winning photography exhibit captures the lives of 4 young women who have dealt with breast cancer and the scars that followed.

Marcy, is one of the ladies in this documentary.  The last airing of Exposed:  Baring It All will air tomorrow (Friday), July 14 at 9am CST on the Style Network.  I urge and beg you to watch it!!  (Check your local listings).  After this last airing, it will be available on Amazon at a later date.

The SCAR Project by photographer David Jay will also be shown at selected cities across the country.  If you get a chance to go see it, I encourage you to do it.  I hope that it comes to St. Louis! 

I will be honest with you and say that this documentary is not an easy thing to watch.  It is raw, it is ugly, and it is real.  You will definitely need a box of tissues handy but I promise you that you will be inspired by these 4 women and you will be PROUD to be a woman.  We come from the same stock and to see our sisters fight like these women have and still are doing, you will have such a sense of pride for each of them.

Here is a trailer of my friend, Marcy's, story.
