Argentinian actress Lorena Meritano, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2015, is inspiring fans all over the world with a photo of her double mastectomy scars.
Alongside the moving pic, the 45-year-old detailed how she discovered the lump that led to her diagnosis.
"Life puts you to the test plenty of times, sometimes you can easily pass them and sometimes you don't... In March 2014, I got a regular physical and I was healthy. The following month, while doing a self-breast exam, I found a bump," she explained. "I acted quickly and after many exams, tests, biopsies, and pitching, I knew they had to operate quickly."
The star also revealed that once her scars heal, she plans to have her areolas tattooed onto her breasts.
Lorena made headlines earlier this year when she announced that her husband had asked for a divorce after finding out that she needed her left breast and ovaries removed.
"I am not more than another human being, and like many, I've had to face difficulties, and I am proud of my strength to do so. I feel that I'm getting there," she added of her situation.
