Cyndi Wang Poses Half-nude For Cancer Patients

Always stingy in exposing skin to people, this time Cyndi Wang made a breakthrough and photographed in half-nude for a cancer foundation. Asked why she was willing to take her clothes off for it, Cyndi's manager expressed: "Because Cyndi agrees with the concept of the event, plus it's for charity, so she decided to participate and express her support with action."
In the photo, Cyndi faced front to the camera and exposed her upper body with chest covered with her arms. Her manager explained the zipper on the waist: "Because many cancer patients had surgery scar on their bodies, so the photographer decided to express the idea with a zipper."


Cyndi's grandpa passed away because of liver cancer and been through many troubles during his living days. So Cyndi accepted the invitation of posing half-nude from the cancer foundation. The photographer first asked her to try exposing her shoulders, then convinced her to go topless. Thinking that she is contributing for cancer patients, she decided to go for it. This photo was sold with $10 thousand USD yesterday.
