"My boobies, my way"

I’m doing it for cancer!

I’m doing it for cancer!

I’m challenging myself to support Cancer Council in their mission for a cancer free future.

I have been the 1 in 2 Australians diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime! I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016 at the age of 40!

There is no history of cancer in my family, and I've always been relatively fit and healthy - the diagnosis was a complete shock to me and my loved ones.

It literally rocked our world and life will never be the same since that day. Even during my period of extensive treatment (mastectomy, chemo, radiation, immunotherapy and breast reconstruction), I always wanted to do something positive to give other women hope and inspiration to be positive of a future life after cancer…I sincerely believe this mindset has been a great help to me since my diagnosis.

I also hope to encourage women to stay on top of their health, and have regular self checks. I was self checking in the shower when I felt my lump, I had no symptoms of being unwell otherwise. Please, please, please self check regularly.

This is where the My boobies my way project comes in – and it’s been a labour of love for me.

I’ve had the privilege of working with Karen of InTouch Photography to showcase and celebrate brave women who have received a breast cancer diagnosis.

This exhibition (coming in early 2021) celebrates the choices made and the positivity of life after cancer - giving hope and inspiration to women currently facing their own diagnosis and empower them to champion their treatment choices. The beautiful women in this exhibition have generously shared their stories, giving inspiration to those of us early in our journeys. The models range between 1.5 years to 24 years in remission of their breast cancer!

Please sponsor me to support cancer research and provide vital services for Australians living with cancer.

Thank you for your generous donation. Together, we can free the future from cancer.
