Woman says massive L-cup breasts have left her unable to walk and are affecting her mental health, seeks reduction surgery
Alice Whiskin, 26, said her breasts grew from a size H to an L over the past year alone and have caused her a lot of inconvenience
A mother has claimed her massive size L-cup breasts have become unmanageable and are now affecting her mental health.
26-year-old Alice Whiskin of Dartford said her large breasts have given her backache and hindered daily chores and tasks, Daily Mail reports.
According to her, her breasts grew from a size H to an L over the past year. Fortunately, doctors say her breasts are big enough to undergo reduction surgery on the taxpayers' dime.
Alice now plans to donate her tissue following the procedure to breast cancer patients who were forced to have a mastectomy. "They are the biggest they have ever been, I have backache, I can't walk around for long and I can't even tidy up," she told Kent Live. "I am so limited to what I can do and it has been affecting my mental health. But I also want to help anyone I can, it is going to benefit others who need it more."
While she was previously nervous about undergoing surgery, she said her boyfriend's death due to a heart attack earlier this year gave her the confidence to go ahead.
Now, the mother-one-one is working to increase awareness of the impact large breasts can have, and how one can donate extra tissue to breast cancer patients so they can have their breasts reconstructed. Alice has since started a donation page on Facebook.
"I have been given a lovely gift of having big boobs," she wrote on the page. "And that has hopefully given me the greatest opportunity to donate my breast tissue to cancer patients."
"I have been told for a good few years to share and by doing this is more than sharing, by having a boob deduction, generously donated tissue is one of many options available," she explained. "Just one tissue donor can help up to 10 patients reconstruction, life is not about what you have or what you look like, when I give my tissue away that's something in life I will be very very proud of, I do not need them."
"I really will appreciate the support from everyone on this selfless journey," she added.
Alice hopes to reduce her breasts to a size DD or E after her surgery, which would be eight sizes smaller than now.
"The loss of my boyfriend just opened up how lucky I am and that in life you have got to give," she said. "I want to give something to those suffering from cancer. The surgery is four hours and afterward its a month of not doing much."
"I will have a fake nipple and I won't be able to breastfeed if I ever had another baby," she continued. "They can grow back, there is a 10 percent chance, but even if it doesn't work I want this to be talked about more."
