Have you felt the scar yet? The tissue is tough, The skin is tight. You are afraid to. That's okay. Take it slow. Here... just a finger. Move it in circles. The tissue will open. The skin will breathe. It's okay. I would be scared too. You won't feel any cancer. It is gone. I promise. They took it. You are here. Have you felt the scar yet? The tissue is tough. The skin is tight. Let's use just a finger. Move it in circles. I am here. I will help. You are sweating. That's okay. Keep touching your scar. It will get easier. More open. More space. It is gone. I promise. They took it. I see you. You are here.
