Ep. 45 – Body Image, Self-Confidence, Intimacy, & Breast Cancer – Part 1 with Mara DeFilippis of TataTattoos

In Ep. 41, I interviewed the founder of TataTattoos, Mara DeFilippis, about her products & how they are helping women experiment with how they want their bodies to look following breast surgery. Off-air, our conversation continued & morphed into a really powerful conversation about body image, self-confidence, & intimacy related to breast cancer & its treatment. We knew we were really onto something, so I invited Mara back on TheOncoPT Podcast to discuss her experience. This is a really special episode, & I am so excited to share it with you today!
