Pink Hope is so proud to recognise Hannah as member of the month. Hannah supports other increased risk women on the online support groups, shares her story on the Pink Hope website and at fundraising events, participates in Pink Hope campaigns including being one of the community faces for the 2016 Bright Pink Lipstick Day campaign, and raises awareness and funds for Pink Hope. With the support of Emma & Roe Pink Hope is able to thank and spoil Hannah with a beautiful bracelet and Pink Hope charm.
Hannah’s Mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at just 28 years old and then again at 34. At 41 precancerous cells were found in her other breast and this is when Hannah’s Mum decided to have it removed and Hannah starting researching hereditary cancer. With Hannah’s encouragement her Mum undertook genetic testing and was found to carry the BRCA2 gene mutation. At 19 Hannah undertook genetic testing and found she too carries the BRCA2 gene mutation. At just 22 Hannah decided to have a risk reducing double mastectomy to reduce her risk of breast cancer.
Hannah’s personal story is on the Pink Hope website.
A Message from Hannah
“I’m so humbled to be Pink Hopes member of the month! I am so thankful to be a part of the Pink Hope community, which has given me so much. Not only am I surrounded by so many amazing women who have already and continue to help me though this journey, I now have the opportunity to do the same for others though Pink Hope. The tireless work that Pink Hope does to insure that people have access to all this support and information is so incredible and inspiring.
A massive thank you to Emma and Roe for their ongoing support of Pink Hope, it’s because of support like this that Pink Hope can spread their message far and wide and this message is saving lives.”
