“When you are diagnosed with cancer, it completely knocks you down. Now I try to live in the moment and enjoy small things in life,” said Lysianne. Lysianne is one of the three women diagnosed with breast cancer whom Barco invited to a wellness center on the occasion of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We talked, the ladies got a complete makeover and we captured their story and beauty in a picture painted with light.

The get-together was inspiring for Lysianne, as it was for Sabine and Charlotte. “It’s been so long since I didn’t think of my body as a medical object, but as something beautiful. Something I should be proud of. It felt good to share my mammo story,” said Charlotte at the end of the day.
We were truly delighted to give these three women a moment to celebrate life and beauty beyond breast cancer. It’s our way to show we care and are truly committed to women’s health and to spreading hope to women worldwide.
