    I went for a check up, only because I was there for my boys’ general appointments and hadn’t checked the boobies in a while. A lump was found and the following ultrasound confirmed the lump. My GP then referred me to a breast specialist and after more tests, injections and appointments, I was diagnosed with […]

    My name is Lindi. I am 45, a daughter, a sister, a wife and a mum.  Some may say my journey started almost 3 years ago, after testing conducted through the Genetic Clinic in Tasmania showed that I have a BRCA2 gene mutation. I actually believe that my journey started when I was about 25 […]

    My name is Kelly and I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 when I was 31.

    My life was a walking cliché when it came to breast cancer and the facts. “It won’t happen to me.” “I’m too young, I’m only 34.” “I have no family history, no one in my family has died from cancer.” “I’m vegan, I don’t eat junk food.” “I’m extremely active, I go to the gym […]
