Our bodies, our choice

Chat - - Back Chat! -

Alot of women’s bodies carry scars – from child­birth to surgery. But Sharon Don­nelly (is­sue 30, 26 July) has done more for life af­ter can­cer than any ad­vert ever could by em­brac­ing her body af­ter a dou­ble mas­tec­tomy.

She used ev­ery ounce of en­ergy she had to make doc­tors agree to re­move her healthy breast, even af­ter hav­ing post-op com­pli­ca­tions. Good for Sharon. She has earned my ut­most ad­mi­ra­tion and her fab­u­lous photo has paved the way for se­lec­tive mas­tec­tomies. They are our bodies so we should be al­lowed our say when it comes to what we want done with them. Sylvia Monk, Hayling Is­land
