Woman hits back after Facebook removes breast cancer awareness photo

(FOX News) - A terminally ill woman who posted a photo of her nipple to warn about lesser-known breast cancer symptoms is speaking out after Facebook removed her photo.

Rowena Kincaid, 40, shared the photo with her 10,000 followers and explained that the rash pictured is not a well known symptom of the disease, The Sun reported. The photo accumulated more than 72,000 views within the first two hours of being posted.

Kincaid, who lives in Wales, said she was told the photo violated the site’s anti-nudity policy.

“[They don’t] see what the reason behind it is,” Kincaid wrote, according to The Sun. “It’s just automatic. [They] don’t see that the picture I posted earlier may actually save lives.”
