My Updates

I’m shaving my head to raise funds for research and create awareness about breast cancer.

Friday 30th Apr

My inspiration to GO PINK in June:


I have been watching from afar on social media platforms of so many young women under 40 that I know or know of, being diagnosed with breast cancer which is one of the reasons I felt I needed to make the pledge! I am making the pledge to also honour my Sister, Sarah who was diagnosed at 36 with triple negative breast cancer in 2016- she has just had her 5 year check up and is still cancer free!!! And for my Mother, Michelle who had breast cancer twice in her life (first diagnoses age 36),Mum sadly lost her battle at 58 to ovarian cancer.


After my mother’s death,  it prompted me to have genetic testing as it was found My Mum and Sister both carried the BRCA1 gene which significantly increases the risk of breast cancer. Results were in and I too had BRCA1 gene. I was able to have access to preventive measures- regular check ups and yearly MRI’s for 5 years- early detection saves lives! 

After several psychologist visits to ensure I was mentally ready I chose to have a prophylactic double mastectomy, to reduce my risk of breast cancer. I feel so very fortunate that I was able to make that choice, and hopefully look Forward to a future cancer free where I will be around for a long time to grow old with my husband and watch my little boy grow up. Getting the mastectomy was a no brainer in hind sight but emotionally and physically it was huge, But I as I said above I got to choose , Most young people don’t get the opportunity to choose this path and this is why I feel I need to raise money and awareness for this cause, I need to do my bit and get my community to contribute. My inspiration and motivation to raise money for the NBCF is for all the young people who have fought and who are still fighting, for the many people who’s lives that will be forever changed and impacted by breast cancer. 


Research is important to me to as it opens the door to find better ways to prevent, detect and treat cancer and to ensure that cancer survivors live longer, better quality lives. Without research our family wouldn’t have known about the BRCA gene so I am very grateful for that and the opportunities I was able to receive. I always have that fear in the back of my mind  that I have passed my gene mutation onto my son but with ongoing research it makes me feel optimistic for his future. Research has come so far in the years and ongoing fundraisers like  “GO PINK” will hopefully help gain enough money for researchers to reach the goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030 and to me that is so important and exciting! Here’s to changing the future of breast cancer! 


My goal ultimately is that I  hope to raise enough funds to go toward research for zero deaths by 2030 for breast cancer, And  Most importantly I want to start more conversations about breast cancer diagnosis’s in people under the age of 40 and to shout it from the roof tops that it’s not just over 40’s that get breast cancer, that breast cancer doesn’t discriminate! I want young people to be breast aware, for people to be empowered to know and listen to their bodies, you know your body best and if you don’t, you need to become familiar with it! Be your own advocate, you’re the only one responsible for your health and well-being! If I can raise enough awareness and funding to save people from the heartache of losing a loved one I have achieved my ultimate goal! 

Thank you so much for your support and don’t forget to Check your boobies!
