Here is Carol's take on the story:
There must be many of us touched by Jill's story on a personal level - either having a loved one fighting the disease or knowing someone who has it.
It gives me the chills to think about cancer. To tell you the truth, I wouldn't have the courage to do what Jill did. She'd revealed her scars to a photographer and, through her images, to the world. She wasn't shy. Let's be honest, she did something that many women even in perfectly good health dare not to do - she courageously rose above her situation by accepting her body just the way it is.
I keep a black-and-white poster in my room that comes with a simple caption "Fashion makes you free". I think that fashion did help Jill feel free. It helps me too, to keep being myself and see beauty in everything.
