    Thank you for sharing all this, Shannon. I personally know how hard that journey is and how heart-breaking it can be – not once, but over and over again each day. You are a fabulous and strong woman, and I hope you know that I’ve got your back and wish you nothing but all the joy and luck in the world <3

    You are so brave for sharing my love!! And you’re so right – Instagram isn’t always what it seems. Having seen my mother go through breast cancer, I know your decision to get a double mastectomy couldn’t have been an easy one… My mom made the same decision. The good news is that what we go through makes us stronger and you are such a strong person. Thank you for sharing your story. Praying for you <3 <3

    I love posts like this. They’re vulnerable & so relateable and something the internet needs more of. Thanks for getting personal. I can understand how heartbreaking it was, but admire your strength and optimism. It kind of makes Instagram a fun little beautiful place to find peace. Sending you love! x Shannon || http://www.champagneatshannons.com

    Thank you for sharing such a personal story. I am truly touched by your experience. I agree that while IG can be beautiful to look at and serves a purpose, it never tells the whole story. I heard on a podcast this morning that “your mess is your message.” How fitting.
