Ashley Hensley, 38, dressed as Frankenstein’s Bride, Godzilla, and even a Hot Pocket all while standing in front of an EBT machine waiting for treatment.

Ashley, a film booker from Knoxville, Tennessee, was diagnosed with breast cancer on November 13, 2020.

“When I was diagnosed, I was devastated,” she said.

“For a couple of weeks, I cried a lot, but one day I looked in the mirror and said ‘it’s time to get my game face on and work through this.’

“I think it’s so important to have a sense of humor and laugh at yourself in situations that aren’t the best.”

She has since had a partial mastectomy and undergone a month-long round of radiation treatment.

After her operations, Ashley and her husband began fooling around with ideas on how to find humor in her radiation treatment.

“From March 3rd to March 30th I had treatment five days a week, Monday through Friday,” she said.

“We workshopped new photo ideas every day after I started radiation.

“My husband and photoshop are a dangerous combination.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to go through this with.

“These photos really helped me keep smiling during a pretty rough time in my life.”

Following her course of radiation, Ashley is now awaiting tests to determine whether or not she’s cancer-free.

As her photos circulated online, what surprised Ashley most was the amount of outreach she received from her community.

“There was a man going through radiation whose family reached out to us and said they looked at our photos every day.

“So, I knew we had to keep coming up with new picture ideas.

“My favorites are the ones based on movies, like the Ghostbusters one and the Bride of Frankenstein.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to go through this with, and my team at UT Medical Center has been top-notch from day one.

“I’ve just been very lucky.”
