Breast cancer awareness month
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
This month we are proud to help raise awareness from breast cancer by donating $2 from every fresh pink edible flower sale to the beautiful charity loveyoursister.org
Breast cancer affects the lives of many, and raising awareness and building support by those who have been impacted by breast cancer is an issue that is close to our hearts.
Keep reading to hear why we are so proud to stand behind this cause as our very own Jocelyn Cross shares her story.
"I'm very lucky to be a survivor of breast cancer. I was just 38 when I was diagnosed and it was by far the most challenging experience of my life. After my diagnosis, I made the difficult decision to have a full vasectomy (which is a full removal and reconstruction of my left breast)
This was hard decision, but I was very lucky that I did have the full vasectomy because it was later found that I actually had a 50 millimetre precancer tumour inside my breast with six satellite tumours ranging from one eight centimetres down to two millimetres. Had I not had the medical support that I had, I would by far definitely be dead by now.
I endured had chemo whilst running a business and taking care of my little one year old who was still crawling at the time. It was a really challenging experience. And so this month we want you all to get behind breast cancer awareness.
Please check your breasts! We are aiming to raise as much money as possible to help women like me be alive and thrive and be mothers and business owners and be healthy and grateful to be alive."
