50 Shades of Pink.  Women of Breast Influence - Michelle Sheppard

This month I introduce you to Michelle Sheppard, a gorgeous Trans Woman, who I met through social media.  We connected over our love of bras (surprise) and I am happy that I was able to help Michelle.  Although Michelle has not experienced breast cancer personally, I believe her story is important; her advocacy work within her community and teaching her young daughters about body confidence.  Michelle was recently invited by Cancer Council Victoria to participate in their “The Beautiful Women Campaign”.  This campaign is designed to celebrate the beauty and diversity of women and encourage all women in all communities,...

Lessons from October

Posted by Tina Doueihi on

Pinktober is well and truly over.  The pink ribbons are packed away, news stories have slowed down and the pink events are over until next year. So what have we learnt from Pinktober? I would say that there were many lessons and yet there is still more to learn. Thankfully, people are starting to understand that breast cancer is beyond pink.  It is real and nasty.  It cannot be tied up in a pretty pink ribbon.  It is more than a pink a ribbon.  Breast cancer affects real people, their families and their lives.  The McGrath Foundation recently published survey...

Olympic Gold

Last month was the Olympics…or as we Aussies call it, the ‘lympics.

Sisterhood

Sisterhood

Lately, I have been thinking of the sisterhood that comes with breast cancer.  It is one of the positives where there is non-judgmental support and a deep connection with women.  I have met amazing women through my support group and the wonders of social media who I consider my lifelong friends.  The basic reason is these women just get it.  It is as simple as that. One of the many things I love about the women I am meeting is the change we are bringing to the community from our personal experience.  I started Red Fern Lingerie from my personal...

The Singer Heritage

This blog has to be one of the more difficult ones to write because my darling Dad recently passed away and I am still feeling raw with many emotions. My Dad was a special man and he has left me with an amazing legacy of heart, commitment and community. My father taught me many things but one that truly stands out for me is to contribute to your community.  My parents have always been active members of their community and freely gave their time to help others.  My community today is the breast cancer community and I do what I...
