Breast Reconstruction Following Mastectomy

Jim Koenigsaecker | California, United States

Sandy Holden in the bathroom of her home in Westwood, California. Sandy had a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation therapy after being diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Like many women Sandy did not realize that breast reconstruction surgery was covered by insurance after a mastectomy. Sandy eventually looked into that option because it made her sad to see her scars in the mirror every morning. By Jim Koenigsaecker © 2019 (Leica SL, 35mm, ISO 2000, 1/125th of a second, f/4.0)

Sandy Holden is bravely sharing her story and these pictures during Breast Cancer Awareness Month because like many women she did not realize that breast reconstruction surgery was covered by insurance after a mastectomy. This is a work in progress so check back for updates. In the mean time, please spread the word.
