Pink-Ribbon Boudoir Project for Breast Cancer Survivors

The Pink-Ribbon Boudoir Project is seeking nominees for a local boudoir photo retreat to help emotional healing. Boudoir photographer Jana M. Suchy invites breast cancer survivor nominations for a drawing of seven names to win a free half-weekend retreat in August 2022 for complimentary boudoir photo shoots and keepsake photo books.

The event will be followed at a later date by a public photo exhibit to feature survivors embracing their new normal. Suchy partnered with Nadia Larsen’s nonprofit Nadia Strong to fundraise for the project. Larsen survived her own treatment, including 28 radiation treatments, and is now six years cancer-free.

“Jana made me finally feel like a woman again,” said Tubac survivor Mikel Moore of her own private Pink-Ribbon Boudoir shoot, crying after she saw her photo book.

Contact Suchy to learn more and to nominate Southern Arizona survivors you know and love—anyone may nominate survivors, more than one is okay, but each name only once, and survivors may self-nominate. You can find more information and photos at

Suchy began photographing the Alaska fishing fleet in the 1980s and boudoir in 2010—she was hooked when a woman exclaimed, “Oh my god, I’m beautiful, I never knew I was beautiful!”—and knew survivors needed to feel that too. Boudoir photography empowers women by transforming self-image and confidence.
