A Plymouth Meeting resident was featured in a stunning portrait series of breast cancer survivors. New-York based jewelry designer Alexis Bittar told the women to dress up as if they were “going to an amazing party”, writes Pandora Amoratis for London’s The Daily Mail.  

Speech pathologist Abby Match was one of the survivors featured in this powerful series.

Match was 35 years-old when diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in 2020. She was the first in her family whose cancer was recognized by her healthcare professional, and she underwent chemotherapy, radiation, a double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery, writes Adriana Lecuona for the nonprofit Living Beyond Breast Cancer.

The photography series is meant to stop the stigma around breast cancer and to raise awareness. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Bittar is also using half of the profits from his online sales to go toward Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a Bala Cynwyd nonprofit.  

“I grew up around a lot of illness,” Bittar told The Daily Mail. “My mother was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis throughout her body when she was 34. I was 10 years old. By the time I was 25 she was bedridden.”  

Bittar said that he loves the “…idea of merging consumerism with doing social good.”
