The Serenity Project

Beth Fairchild, current president of METAvivor and tattoo artist, discusses the Serenity Project.
Mar 20, 2018

Beth Fairchild was diagnosed with de novo metastatic breast cancer in 2014 at age 34. The diagnosis was a surprise to her because her mammogram results from the month before were negative, and she had never had a lump in her breast. Beth was familiar with breast cancer though. Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 44, and her paternal grandmother died from breast cancer at age 33.

An artist and tattoo professional, Beth and her husband own five tattoo studios. Her focus is on permanent cosmetics, scar camouflage, and areola restoration for people diagnosed with breast cancer.

Beth joins us to talk about Serenity Project, a metastatic breast cancer support campaign that gives patients an opportunity to tell their personal metastatic breast cancer stories through a series of photos and videos.

Listen to the podcast to hear Beth talk about:

  • what the Serenity Project is

  • the inspiration for the Serenity Project and how it became reality

  • what the participants have said about the project

  • what public reaction has been to the project

Listen to Beth's other podcast, Permanent Cosmetics, Scar Camouflage, and Nipple Tattooing.
