Early detection of breast cancer

This is done through the Titto.org foundation.

Myriam Scheffer, a 44-year-old woman, created the Titto.org foundation in the Netherlands last summer that offers free tattoos to women after having a mastectomy.. The creator of this initiative hopes to develop it in 2024 in Belgium and Germany.

According to what Scheffer told AFP, thanks to this initiative, this year there will be several Italian and Swedish women who will be able to do the same from this year in Florence, and perhaps in Stockholm. Well, he assured that in these places there is an important group of women who have undergone surgery.

It is worth mentioning that the foundation only uses tattoo artists who have already worked with scars. One of them is Darryl Veer, 36, who has already carried out three sessions of several hours with one of the women who wanted to tattoo the scar left on her breast. She covered her breast to her back with two red flowers, the stems of which seem to be rooted in the scars, accompanied by blue flowers.

According to what Veer said to the aforementioned media outlet, he felt a lot of pressure because the last thing an artist wants in this case is to fail, and furthermore, the most beautiful thing about making a tattoo is making a person happy.

It is worth mentioning that according to information from the health authorities, one in seven women in the Netherlands will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
