One fake, one real, guess which?

The power of people to overcome their adversity continues to amaze me. Had a wonderful woman suggest the above tag for a new shirt for breast cancer survivors that we have up on our site now. Imagine, someone who's been through the diagnosis, biopsy, mastectomy, chemo, radiation, and eventual reconstruction with this shirt! Awesome. And to still be able to laugh a bit after all she's been through! This really shows the power of the human condition in a situation that defies imagination. And yet, there is a subtle and powerful message here that commands respect of anyone who'se gone through this ordeal. And this might be the most empowering for the individual after all. Way to go!

I'm getting one today!

But, what do you call a reconstructed breast that used your own tissue? I'd say fake. My PS says: "real, but reorganized."
