A woman has decided to share photographs of her body following treatment for breast cancer.

Jenn Atler from Missouri, who is reportedly in remission, posted the pictures on her Tumblr page ('pushinginthepin') to highlight the after-effects of treatment.

She appeared to be hitting out at ‘No Bra Day’ which aims to encourage women to check for symptoms of breast cancer and celebrate their boobs by ditching their bras or alternatively wearing something purple.

Alongside the images, Jenn wrote: “Here’s your f**king breast cancer awareness

“This was during my 35 day radiation treatment back in 2013. Breast cancer isn’t sexy. It’s not about saving the boobies. It’s not about no bra day, which is really just an excuse for women to post sexy pics of their nipples pressing through their clothes. It’s scars, nausea, pain, bald heads, burnt skin, and broken hearts.

“If this doesn’t make you “aware” then I don’t know what will.

“Does it make you uncomfortable? It should.”
