Tupperware for breast cancer

By Emma Ballantyne

I'm now a Zero Hero

You never think it will happen to you…… Well it happened to me! 

On Friday 8th of April I found myself sitting across from my specialist and hearing those words ‘it is cancer’. 

As I sat there holding my husbands hand, I wasn’t overcome with emotions. I sat quietly for what seemed forever but was only a few moments wondering how is this possible with no pain or symptoms. It was completely unexpected but I found myself thinking thank god for my new Dr or this would not have been found. 

So 2 weeks later I was in surgery having a lumpectomy and reconstruction and now I’m allowing myself time to heal. Prognosis is good. 

Prior to surgery I found myself looking for things I can do to make a difference and came up with using my business to help raise funds to support research and treatment for breast cancer and other cancers. 

To achieve this, I need your help. All donations made to this page will help do exactly that. 

Treatments have come such a long way. I really believe research is the best way to prevent deaths, and improve how breast cancer is diagnosed, managed and treated. NBCF is working towards one goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. Together we can help them get there.

Click 'Donate' to make a secure online donation and help me reach my goal. Every donation, big or small, will help me get there. Please donate today.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and you will be issued with a tax-deductible receipt via email as soon as you make your donation.

Thank you so much for your support!
