Allyson admits that after being diagnosed with breast cancer, she was feeling very sad and alone. She said, “I had some very dark moments and it was more challenging than I could have ever imagined. I wanted to give up at points, I said I would never do it again. I just cried, I cried every single day.”
After beating the disease, Allyson said that she found strength that she didn’t even know she had. As a way to honor that strength and her battle with cancer, Allyson chose to get a stunning tattoo on her chest.
Allyson’s story has since gone viral, and inspired others struggling with breast cancer and other forms of the disease to feel empowered.
Other breast cancer survivors have also used tattoos as a way to cover their scars and celebrate their victory against cancer – and the results have been beautiful.
Stories like this just go to show that somethings something positive can come out of even the most negative experiences.
