Body image struggles and body confidence is not a new concept to anyone, but understanding the correlation with cancer patients is. Ashleigh, a young director, has seen several family members battle cancer treatment so now embarks on a journey to find out what happens when treatment is over. This journey begins with a deep dive into the lives of two breast cancer survivors who are now finding their way through life with a changed and scarred body. Caitilin, a mother of three boys, shares her journey from diagnosis to now, in two years remission, and opens up about the tactics she has used to help focus on the future rather than the past. Similarly, Jo, a mother of two daughters, shares how she founded a charity to ensure other women have the best experience in the worst situations. But for both ladies there is one more step they hope to take in order to feel whole again. Therefore Ashleigh joins these ladies on their personal journeys as they turn to nipple tattooing and body painting to celebrate their bodies and how strong they have been so far. In turn sharing with all cancer survivors out there that there are ways to love yourself, even when scars cloud both body and mind.
