Women’s News: Why This Woman Documented Her Harrowing, Stunning Journey Through Breast Cancer

When Hannah Foxley learned she had cancer, she never imagined that she would end up posing naked for Cosmopolitan magazine.

Foxley, now 35, was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2011. She subsequently had a lumpectomy and went through eight cycles of chemotherapy over the course of six months, making the decision to document her journey through photographs in the hopes that the images would bring comfort to other cancer patients.

“My photographer friend Justin [Paget] and I had done some pictures just before I started chemo,” Foxley told The Huffington Post in a phone interview. “And he said to me, ‘how would you feel about doing some pictures of you going through treatment?’ And I said I would be happy to do it, because there’s a lot of pictures around of older women who’ve been through breast cancer, but there’s very, very little photographically of younger women.”
