May 23, 2012
The photographs show the incredible strength and courage of a woman who beatcancer were considered ‘pornographic’ and Facebook removed them.
Joanne Jackson, 40, mother of two, had a photo shoot to celebrate winning her battle against the deadly disease after mastectomy and published it in the social networking site.
However, Facebook removed some of the images for considering them to be offensive.
‘There is nothing pornographic or explicit about these pictures. That was not the idea at all.
‘I took breast cancer and the mastectomy in my stride and decided it wasn’t going to stop me living my life. It wasn’t going to define who I was, and it didn’t make me any less attractive as a woman.
‘My attitude was to just get on with it. I knew I could kick cancer’s ass and I did.’
