International Women’s Day: Beth Whaanga

“My scars are not ugly; they mean I’m alive.”

“If the ‘Under The Red Dress’ project helps one man, woman or family deal with their battle with cancer, or helps one person in their preventative journey, than I’m very happy,”


Beth Whaanga, a healthcare professional from Australia, has undergone multiple operations to be free of cancer and the threat of cancer. She posted photographs of her scar-ravaged body on Facebook to increase awareness of cancer and encourage other women to self-check for early signs.
