Inspiring! Brave breast cancer survivor, 24, shares photos of her surgery scars to create awareness

- Jessica Geneva Florence was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 22

- After undergoing treatment, she has been declared cancer-free at the age of 24

- To celebrate and spread awareness, she decided to do a topless photo shoot to show her scars

A 24-year-old breast cancer survivor is on a mission to spread awareness of the condition by sharing photos of her post-surgery scars.

Jessica Geneva Florence, from Florida, US, was diagnosed with the disease when she was just 22. In an interview, she said this came as a big surprise.

She said: “My cancer was not genetic; I have no family history. As a young woman diagnosed at 22 I was told that I was too young to have cancer — but sure enough, I did.”

After undergoing intensive treatment that included chemotherapy and mastectomy, she has now been declared cancer-free.

She decided to do a topless photoshoot and shared the photos on her Instagram account. (Due to content restrictions, we are unable to publish them here. To view them, visit her Instagram page.)

In one inspiring post, Florence urged people to support breast cancer patients and survivors: "Make sure you tell your breast cancer survivor she is beautiful if she a female! Males you are handsome because they get breast cancer too!"
