A YOUNG mum who had a double mastectomy age 26 now poses topless to celebrate her survival and new breasts, scars and all.

 

Domonique Mitchell, from Detroit, was familiar with breast cancer: her grandmother had died of it just there weeks after diagnosis and she’d got a tattoo on her waist to remember her. But at just 26-years-old, while breastfeeding her baby daughter, Dom was shocked to be diagnosed with the same cancer herself. While breast cancer is now the most common cancer in women worldwide – one in eight women will get it in their lifetime.

 

The odds of getting breast cancer in your 20's is a lot more uncommon – so rare in fact there are few statistics for this age range. Dom had to give up her studies and much of her childcare duties in a bid to beat the cancer. She succeeded and decided to have a double mastectomy alongside her cancer treatment. Foregoing the nipple tattoos to make her breasts look ‘normal’, she told Barcroft TV: “I’m never gonna be normal again, you know normal as far as my breasts.”
