- Facebook has anyway placed an advertisement which Burns Foundation wanted to ask attention for the next collection. The foundation reported earlier Monday that the ad was rejected to her surprise. Which contains a picture of a young woman with facial burns.

On its website, the foundation wrote an open letter to Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg. ' The reason: The ad contains images that show a perfect body type or undesirable. ''

Facebook has examined the foregoing, it is concluded that the ad was improperly installed and will not do so. A spokeswoman announced that there are now contact has been with the Burn Foundation. ' We have said that it is unfortunate what happened. ''

Facebook appears to intervene more frequently if posted photographs does not meet the 'ideal' image of the intact human. Also (former) cancer patients who come together digitally in a closed group to exchange experiences, which have repeatedly experienced. Photos of breast reconstruction after cancer removed by Facebook.

Désirée Hairwassers, 'patient advocate' and himself a member of the Facebook group for hereditary breast cancer, confirms: ' Many women show up because it is a private situation and they feel free, the results of their breast reconstruction immediately after surgery is carried out. On those pictures is sometimes a nipple, cha you did so with breasts. A nipple that could be or has been reconstructed fortunately preserved. And Facebook scans. Nipples may not manifest. So then all of a sudden these pictures disappeared. '

According Hairwassers never responded to questions about Facebook. ' There are submitted by a hundred women from our group brca complaints. Never has there been a response to come. Disgraceful! '
