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. ...

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,...

No down days allowed!!!

Posted by Tina Doueihi on

I want to start this blog by stating that as a breast cancer survivor I am extremely grateful that I am alive and well.  It has been 8 years since I was diagnosed with the disease. Now, despite my gratefulness, I have down days.  Nothing unusual there.  I am human, and I ride the cycle of emotions of daily living which include absolute highs and lows and in-between too.  Yet, as I survivor, I feel that I am not allowed to have down days.  This feeling comes from the wider community.  I constantly hear comments such as “You are lucky...

Being Grateful

Posted by Tina Doueihi on

Today, I am writing about being grateful, because I have a lot to be grateful for. A lot. Every day, well more days than not….I am human and have my down days, I wake up and say thank you to the big bloke upstairs and all his executive staff. I honestly believe there is someone seriously looking out for me. Every night (again more days than not), I also say thank you for the day I had. My usual list of things that I am grateful for and say thank you are my health, the opportunity to create Red Fern...
