I feel so honoured to be involved in a campaign for Pink Hope that helps and encourages so many women and could one day even save your life or the life of someone you know.

I’ve been trying to write this post for a couple of days now, I didn’t really know where to begin or how I could really describe what I’m feeling or what was going through my mind because there are so many things I want to say.

I was introduced to Pink Hope when their ‘Know Your Risk’ tool came out. (You can find the link at the bottom of this post). This is such a powerful tool to recognise your health and the steps you can take for prevention and taking early action.

My beautiful best friend of 16 years had the most beautiful mum who sadly lost the battle of breast cancer a year and a half ago. It brings tears to my eyes when I think about her, how much I loved her and the love I have for my beautiful friend, I can’t even put into words.

Living away from home for four years has come with its challenges of not being close to family. I received a call from my darling mother in October last year. A call that’s not taken well by distance because all I wanted to do is squeeze my mum and tell her how much I love her.

Mum called to tell me that the lumps she had found in her breasts were breast cancer. This was early days, we didn’t really know too much information other than the diagnosis.

I couldn’t really speak after hearing mum’s news, all I could do was cry and feel my heart race. I jumped on a plane two days later to surprise my beautiful mum and spend a few days being with her.

She is now 5 months into her treatments and the strength she has is incredible and inspiring. Mum you are insanely beautiful.

What is also incredible is the amount of support received. I reached out to Pink Hope and immediately got a response, their continued support has been wonderful and very heart-warming for my mum.

It would be amazing for you to participate in using this online tool.

Go with you girlfriends to get checked.

Tell someone how much you love them.

I can’t explain how much this last year has changed me and I am so open to anyone wanting to reach out and speak about their experiences.
