“I don’t have nipples because of cancer” — Stephanie Benson

Stephanie Benson has talked openly about her battle with cancer since leaving the hospital.

 

For the first time, Akosua Agyapong’s older sister opened out about her flaws while pleading with all women to accept and respect their own bodies.

 

Stephanie Benson revealed that she is covered with scars from the top of her body to her knees, not the gorgeous woman her admirers are used to seeing.

She admitted that some of the scars are a result of her battle to survive breast and reproductive organ cancer.

 

She claims that she has scars from childbirth, a double mastectomy, and a hysterectomy on her stomach in addition to two scars on each breast from the same treatment.

 

She stated that she has lost her nipples as a result of the severity of her breast cancer, but she is grateful to be alive.

Aside from the scars brought on by the cancer, the remarkable woman in music mentioned that she needed hormone infusions to function correctly, which left scars on her ribs.

 

Others from falling off a motorcycle are also visible on her face and knees.

 

While promoting body positivity and cancer screening in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, she made the revelations.

“Love yourself; you are all you have and nobody will love you as much as you love yourself,” she said in a video she shared on Instagram.
