Day 235: Scar Beneath the Surface.

From the Lost August files.


I think I was going through a breast cancer scare. Ever since I started surfing years ago when I lived in Australia, my boobs have had this weird tissue inside. I think it's from the weight of my body pressing to the board. I've had doctors check it out but it still scares me.
