Emma Fantasia's ADELAIDE #8TartChallenge

By Emma Fantasia

Help me create a cancer free future consuming PORTUGUESE CUSTARD TARTS here in ADELAIDE, SA.


My name is Emma Fantasia &  I have Cervical Cancer that was diagnosed as a 5cm tumour back in March 2018, which then presented in my Lungs in April 2020 & as of 27.7.21 (6 weeks ago), 9 tumours were diagnosed on my Brain. Thats a pretty wild ride right!

The Cancer Council SA & my broader SA Business Community Community have been a phenomenal support to me here in ADELAIDE, so when the opportunity opens to support a number of PHILANTHROPY INITIATIAVE'S  with the Cancer Council SA to change the future for all South Australian women, I get excited!

I have been channelling a little woo-woo (Angel Numbers) to help me personally move forward through healing & as  a result, I have raised:

$5055 for the Biggest Morning Tea 27.5.21

$7077 for Daffolid Day 27.8.21

Target $8K for the current #8TartChallenge

The #8TartChallengeBox is $28 & includes 8 original Portuguese Tarts, selection of florals to decorate Tarts & a beautiful participation keepsake card.

$8 per #8TartChallenge Box will be donated to my Page here.

1000 boxes sold = $8K raised!

Help me achieve this target by JOINING me.

There are PICK UP & DELIVERY options (up to 40km radius from TORRENS PARK, SA 5062)

Please email me to ORDER your #8TartChallengeBox


Every day South Australian women will hear those dreaded words, “you have cancer” and while the survival rate has increased, there is still more work to be done.

That’s why I’m bringing everyone together - to raise funds to get us closer to a future free from women’s cancers.


(8pm CUT OFF)

CHALLENGE OPEN (8.9.21 to 18.10.21)

PICK UP & DELIVERY available next day 

high noon - 4pm.

Don’t want to JOIN the CHALLENGE, that’s ok, you can still SUPPORT me by DONATING here. 

Your support will be powering vital research, prevention and support services. Making a difference to so many in their most vulnerable time, now and into the future.

Together, we can create a future for all South Australian women.

Thankyou for your SUPPORT. 




This helps me help others.

My Updates

Emma’s Treament Update 16.9.21

Thursday 16th Sep
7 weeks ago, 9 cervical cancer tumours were diagnosed in my brain. 

I get asked a bit about pain.
I don’t have pain.

I get asked about scan results.
I’ve had a great team of chemo & radiation docs since October 2018 when I was first diagnosed, who scan regularly, this was how the lung tumours were picked up. The latest of these scans were done last week & we can safely say there is no tumours in the body from the previous sites where it presented in the cervix & lungs. Win for the good guys. ??

The scan on my brain is booked in for a couple of weeks time. Even tough I finished my 5 zaps of full brain radiation treatment on the 18.8.21, docs won’t scan immediately as radiation inflames tumours, so if they did a scan now, the size of the tumours would be an inaccurate reading. So we wait.

In the meantime, the amount of drugs I’m on (in particular the steroids) is not much fun & unsuitable long term, so we are working with the palliative team & docs to dial them back a bit, this is not that easy. But we are working with a great team, so I feel very well managed.

Otherwise, all good here & so grateful for the positive vibes & messages from everyone, especially me people in Melboune who are doing it way tougher in lockdown land than me here in Adelaide. 

Sending extra love to you guys. 
Love you all.
