    I photographed artist, Coco Larrain, at her home the day before she had a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. She is just one of many women I know who have struggled with this disease which is 20% more prevalent where I live than in the rest of the US. I love her bravery in asking me to photograph her and allowing her image to be shared at photo exhibits and other public forums to inspire other women struggling with breast cancer. Coco has been in remission for several years now.

    This is a very arresting portrait. Coco’s eyes say it all. Thank you for sharing your photograph that addresses such an important issue.
