Pink Hope x Wrinkles Schminkles – Wendy’s Story
The health implications of cancer are obvious, but for many, the changes cancer can bring to the body aren’t widely publicised.
Wendy, a 45-year-old mother of two, was diagnosed at age 40 with the BRCA2 gene mutation. After close monitoring in March 2013 via MRI Wendy found out she had early-stage breast cancer with a 9mm tumour detected in her right breast. Following a huge five surgeries in just three years, the toll on Wendy’s body started to clock and she became increasingly aware of the scaring, and wrinkles that the stress of her journey had brought about.
With a strong history of cancer in her family, founder of Wrinkles Schminkles, Gabrielle Requena joined forces with Pink Hope to bring to life their own Limited Edition ‘Chest Revival Kit’ to help women like Wendy who’s skin had born the brunt of cancer and its various treatments and surgeries.
Dr Natasha Cook, Australian Dermatologist explains that for many women, the changes to a woman’s body following cancer are often as confronting as the cancer itself,
“Breast cancer and radiation therapy has a significant impact on the skin, leading to sensitivity, irritation and degradation of the breast and chest tissue. Medical grade silicone can assist in protecting, improving the texture and reducing sensitivity that these women suffer from.”

100% of the proceeds from the ‘Chest Revival Kit’ will be donated to Pink Hope during the month of March. Funds raised will help Pink Hope to continue to raise awareness in the preventative health field as they work hard to ensure all Australians have the necessary tools to reduce their risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
