Rethink Blog – A Letter To My Mother

This Mother’s Day, I was asked to blog about the relationship I have with my mother. It was an honour to be asked and to put in writing how utterly incredible my mumsie is. If you’re blessed to know her, she’s strong, hilarious, selfless, trustworthy and caring… no words ever seem like enough. She makes life magical. To read the post, click this link.

Happy Mother’s Day to the most amazing person I know – my bff, my main – my mumsie!



Rethink Blog – BRCA1 and Me

My newest Rethink Breast Cancer blog is live! Link below. Being diagnosed with BRCA1 brought me to one of the darkest places in my life. This post delves into the process, the results, the aftermath and my goodbye to the baby I’ll never have. (Pictured: me refusing to get off mom’s lap before my hysterectomy.)

Rethink Breast Cancer

I’m struggling to find the words to express how much this means to me. I was asked to be featured on Rethink Breast Cancer’s blog and it was published today (click the link at the bottom of this story to check it out!). I was fortunate enough to find Rethink after my interview/post on Connecting with Rethink was like coming home. Their mission is to “empower young people worldwide who are concerned about and affected by breast cancer.” When I was on their website and read, “no pink ribbons required,” I cheered. Literally.

I find the timing of the blog post poignant – I quietly observed my four year anniversary of finding out I had breast cancer on Sunday (11/12/13). I feel completely inspired to help young women who are affected by breast cancer (and all other cancers).

Please visit Rethink’s website and check out their absolutely incredible work. (They even have a Give-A-Care package: “The first line of products for young women with breast cancer, that actually understands young women with breast cancer. You can build a personalized care package that acknowledges what she’s really going through, and gives her the care she really needs.” #amazing)
