In 2018, my world fell apart.  I was diagnosed with HER2+ breast cancer at just 37. I had 3 cancerous lesions in my right breast. I received a PET scan and found that the cancer had also travelled to a couple of lymph nodes.  I could not believe it.  I don't smoke, I'm an avid sportsperson (I actually played Junior hockey for Australia) and I only drink occasionally.  

I immediately put my full time job as an economist on hold and started my cancer management journey. I underwent 16 rounds of chemo, double mastectomy, 25 rounds of radiation, and 18 weeks of herceptin. 

During my cancer journey I decided it was really important to use my skills to help my fellow cancer warriors.  I started the Know Your Knockers Breast Cancer Pocket Guide, which provides lots of content and information on products and services available for patients.  You can download a copy here www.knowyourknockers.com.  I also started to design and manufacture my own range of pocketed fashion.  And I'm absolutely loving it!  I love producing Australian made products to showcase our talents all over the world.  I have a local designer and both Brenda and I are so determined to ensure we deliver amazing products to all of the beautiful women that have been touched by this disease!
