Welcome to episode 24 of Mind Bloom. This a bonus episode, to celebrate October Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Marina Gee speaks with Devorah Vester, a lawyer, an activist, a mental health advocate, a sourdough baker, and a board member of Not Putting on a Shirt, the non-profit organization founded by Kim Bowles in the wake of experiencing "flat denial". Not Putting on a Shirt is dedicated to advocating and actively providing breast cancer patients and providers with the knowledge to make informed decisions conducive to an optimal surgical and aesthetic outcome post-mastectomy. The phrase Aesthetic Flat Closure, which entered the lexicon of the National Cancer Institute thanks to the activism of Not Putting on a Shirt, defines the choice not to reconstruct the breast mounds post-mastectomy. Aesthetic Flat Closure gives name to, in other words, the option to have a smooth, flat chest wall, aligned with the woman's needs and her informed consent.
Listen through to learn more about the work of the amazing organization Devorah is so proud to be a voice for, and definitely stick around if you are interested in sourdough, love to sourdough bake or, like Marina Gee, chooses to embrace the baking fails and achievements alike, while finding respite in kneading and working the soft, indulgent dough.
