Breast Reduction

Blessing or curse? Many men and women dream of undergoing
cosmetic surgery to fine tune their bodies to their most desirable
appearance. If cosmetic dreams are justifiable to fulfill one’s pursuit of
happiness, why is a breast reduction not so easily attainable? Breast
reductions are considered cosmetic surgeries; however, some would beg to
differ. This surgery can be the solution for a woman living with chronic
unbearable pain.

One of these women happens to be my aunt. Why should one’s right to feel comfortable and pain free in his or her own body be so financially challenging to obtain?

My aunt has years of scaring on her chest and back from bra underwire
rubbing into her skin. Bra straps are suitable for average cup sizes; however, they were not created with the intention to care for breasts larger in size that pose an unbearable amount of weight on a woman’s torso. She has permanent divots into her shoulders from her bra straps. The hormonal surges during her menstrual cycle amplify the pain and sensitivity, and she must wear a bra throughout her entire cycle to help her body bear the weight on her chest. Before she sleeps, she places a pillow into her cleavage to prevent the ten-pound stretch of one breast from overcoming the other. She can’t enjoy high intensity workouts without a
constant 20-pound weight resisting her body in space.

Please take a second to think back to an embarrassing moment in your
life. My aunt has lived with constant judgment and distaste from others because of her naturally large breast size.
To top it all off, another car collided into her Jeep 26 years ago that
sent her vehicle rolling over three times on the interstate highway. She was hospitalized for one week. This has only contributed to the chronic musculoskeletal pain in her body.
I appreciate you all taking the time to read this. I know many of you
either can personally relate or have family members who can relate to my
aunt’s unbearable pain.

I am asking for even the slightest financial support for my aunt who
has been a mother to me my entire life. She has lived with too much pain
caused by her own body and it’s time she found relief.
Thank you kindly. ~
