Knife Styles [Double Mastectomy - Featuring Aniela McGuinness ]

KNIFE STYLES SERIES [ A series in which we talk about health and surgical events from honest people who've got a story]


Not ONLY is it Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it has also been a year since, Aniela McGuinness, found out and was diagnosed with BREAST CANCER. I came across this young woman by chance. I met her while working in a casting office, and she came in with the BRIGHTEST smile I had ever seen, some time last winter. She was sweet, warm, and made you feel right at home when you spoke with her. Mind you that brief casting, where she came in, and auditioned while I just " read her lines", nothing ever told me " I'm sick, I'm tired, I'm currently coming down from chemo" I would have never known. Then soon after I bumped into her for a callback for an indie flick, and lastly saw someone shared her VLOGS on facebook.

I binged on the video's, I cried, I laughed. I laughed more than I cried (SHE's F@#K%^G HILARIOUS), and I decided to reach out to her via facebook. She quickly remembered me and I didnt feel so awkward anymore. This friendship of ours is very new, but still rather old. I'm looking forward to seeing what her future has instore for her and how many lives she will inspire because of her amazing journey!
