Scars Are Beautiful

Stage III melanoma didn’t stop this dynamic twenty-three year old athlete. Nothing could stop her from living her dreams of becoming a national champion. Not a huge incision on her chest, a total lymph dissection or the potential for disability that comes with the process. Sarah said, “The huge scars on my chest are my badges of honor. I am still beautiful. We all have scars. To have a scar is to have a story about living. Scars are about depth and surviving. Living is beautiful. When I decided my scars were beautiful, I became more beautiful.”
