Michelle Ross, 30, from Wigan, Greater Manchester, has shared an image of her cancer surgery scars to show the reality of mastectomy, which has been viewed almost 30,000 times. Michelle, who is mum to Jayden, eight, and Ava Mai, six, says she’s not ashamed of her scars, but is trying to raise money to pay for tattoos to cover them up so she can take control of her body again. An image of Michelle’s post-cancer body (inset) shows a long scar across her stomach where surgeons removed tissue to reconstruct her breast with. Martin praised his wife (pictured right together with Jayden and Ava Mai) and for raising money for Breast Cancer Care during her treatment and now wants to give something back by raising the funds she needs to have her tattoos.
