Topless Cancer Swimmer

Jodi Jaecks is seen in a June 20, 2012 photo in Seattle. Jaecks, 47, pressed for months to swim topless in a city pool after her double mastectomy made wearing swim tops painful. The Seattle Parks and Recreation Department has reversed a decision by its aquatics manager and decided to allow Jaecks to swim topless in a public pool. Parks Superintendent Christopher Williams says there's nothing to alarm the public, so the department decided to make an exception to its dress policy for public pools.
