The Seattle Parks and Recreation Department has reversed a decision by its aquatics manager and decided to allow a woman who had a double mastectomy to swim topless. 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. TV reports ( http://is.gd/Uzz7Mv ) Jodi Jaecks (Jayks) wanted to swim at the city's Medgar Evers Pool to help recover her strength after she had chemotherapy for breast cancer and had both breasts surgically removed. She couldn't find a swimsuit with a comfortable top and asked to swim topless...Jaecks says cancer patients shouldn't be made to feel self-conscious by asking special permission. ---
