I asked Yvonne what her shade of Pink is...

50 Shades of Pink.  Women of Breast Influence - Nikki Speer

This month I introduce you to Nikki Speer, who is a beautiful Previvor. I met Nikki through Instagram where she shares her story and clothing line inspired by her late beautiful mum. Although, Nikki, has not had breast cancer, she has experienced it many times through the women in her family. She has been a care-giver, supporter, and advocate.  The strong chance that she too can one day be another breast cancer statistic in her family, and wanting to be there for her husband and children, made her decide to take drastic measures and have a double mastectomy and reconstruction. ...
