Mum asks strangers to pay for £8k boob reduction op as KK chest is ‘ruining her life’

BARELY able to walk and with crippling back pain, Danielle Sullivan says her enormous boobs are ruining her life.

The mum-of-two, 29, has size 28 double K breasts which have left her struggling to sleep and with painful sores and wounds.

And she even struggles to go out in public - fearful of glances from leering blokes.

Desperate to turn her life around, Danielle is now begging strangers to donate £8,000 for her to have a privately funded breast reduction op.

It comes after the mental health assistant, from Selby, North Yorks, was denied the op on the NHS.

She said: "They've made my life a living nightmare in so many ways.

"The pain is constant. It begins from the moment I wake up and lasts until I go to bed.

"I take quite strong painkillers but they often don't work at all. I've had sores and open wounds on my boobs and they're absolute agony.

"The back pain from the sheer weight of them is terrible too. I struggle to walk for more than 15 minutes without them hurting.

"I'm very self conscious about the size of them too. It's the first thing people notice about me."

Danielle's boobs frequently get covered in painful sores and wounds meaning that she's often at risk of infection.

Finding nice fitting clothes is also a struggle for Danielle because of the size of her boobs and she says she avoids wearing anything too revealing.

"I have to buy my bras online as most shops don't stock my size," she said.

"When they come they're like granny bras and they're not very nice.

"I struggle to find tops and nice clothes that show my figure. I just feel comfortable wearing baggy t-shirts and and my partner's tops, I can't wear anything flattering."

Danielle first became aware of the size of her boobs aged ten when she had B cup boobs.

She said: "At school people would always comment about how big they were.

"Boys always stared at me and it made me feel very uncomfortable from quite an early age.

"All the girls used to be envious of me and say 'I wish I had what you had' but the reality is that it's been a real struggle.

"I'm self-conscious all the time, it makes me not want to go to places and do things.

"If I know I'm going somewhere nice I get anxious about what I'm going to wear and how I can minimise the size of them."

Her bulky bust means that Danielle struggles to be as active as she would like and she finds it difficult to stand up for long periods of time.

On top of this, she claims the sheer size of her bust prevents her from being the mum she wants to be as she's often unable to play with her children because of the pain she experiences.

"When my youngest was small the size of my boobs was a real issue," she added.

"I struggled to pick him up and hold him. Even now with both my kids playing around with them can be a real problem as it makes running around pretty tricky.

"I've lost two stone recently and it's made no difference at all.

"No matter what weight I've been my boobs have always been issue."

Danielle says she has attempted to seek funding for a breast reduction on the NHS but claims she has been denied the procedure on the grounds that it is deemed cosmetic.

She said: "Having the surgery would change my life. I'd be able to be a better mum to my children and would be able to live a fuller life.

"The pain and the physical restrictions break my heart sometimes. I just want to be there for my kids as any mum would."

Danielle and her family are currently trying to raise £8,000 on GoFundMe in a bid to have the surgery privately.
