Normally I try to keep my personal life off of social media. And I was seriously debating if I wanted to share this journey with people, but I do. Not for likes or for anyone to feel bad for me. But because I think it’s important for people to understand the humility and humanity in each other. On April 12th, 2016 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I have zero history of cancer in my family. I work out six days a week and been active for the majority of my life. I never smoked, I maintain a healthy diet, and I have never been obese. In fact, my only risk factor was that I am a female over the age of 30. I don’t know how this happened or why, but it is here and I have to deal with it now. So much of our lives are spent feeling invincible, praying only when things go bad (🏽 I am guilty of this), being caught up in social media, trying to achieve some sort of social standard, or just being busy in daily life – that we rarely stop to realize how lucky we are to live the life we have been gifted. I hope this serves as PSA to everyone; ladies do your own breast exams, #TouchYoTitties or have someone do it for you 😈, see your dr’s regularly. Men, get your physical’s, get your checked. We are all human, we all have downfalls and shortcomings, shit happens, but it’s how we choose to live when that shit happens that makes us better people. And don’t just be better for yourselves, be better for the people you love ️, people who you meet in your daily lives, those whose lives you may touch and may never even meet. Be better for humanity, because honestly, we need better people #FuckCancer #SaveALifeGropeYourWife #BigOrSmallSaveThemAll @lawda_m3rcy

I never really wanted to be an advocate, to be honest. But Connie told me I should. So we tried. I got right into it and now I can't imagine life without it. And we might be alright at it too coz Research Australia just gave me and sis some crystal that says 'Advocate of the Year' on it. It really does mean so much to me. We've tried out guts out and this is proof of that. Thanks for showing me the bigger picture Con. What a view. What a ride. So fucken chuffed.

shape_up_girl Check your boobies ladies. DO IT. I'm only 29 and I thought the only threat to my health was the extra 25kg I was carrying. Lucky mine looks benign right now but please check your breasts for abnormalities!! #breastcheck #anyoneanyage #copafeel #gropable #suckitup #begrateful #savealifegropeyourwife #ithappenedtome 6mon

Tracy from Tuncurry wrestles with mental health stuff. When she heard I'd be unicycling through her hood she determined to do something to help us and her. She leant on her friend Kathy and together they helped raise 5k. She was hoping for 1k. When I finished my ride I invited her to my homecoming - she said she wouldn't miss it, but it meant a plane flight. She hadn't flown for years. On the flight she laughed and cried, enjoying every minute. With a wine of course! She made it to Melbs, we re-united and she has commemorated the experience with this Love Your Sister tattoo on her left boob. What a champ. Miss you Trace. Hopefully I'll see you soon. xsam

loveyoursister Spent all day in hospital looking forward to this moment. Willoughby brushed my hair, smoothed my blankets and fed me chocolate while Hamilton thrilled me with questions and statistics. Apparently, Jupiter is the size of 1,320 planet Earths!

sephorauniversity "I was diagnosed with breast cancer in Nov 2013. My husband actually found the lump during a trip to NYC. I was sure it was nothing and refused to let it get in the way of my schedule for the following week because of course I had “work” things that were too important to miss. Fortunately for me, I have an extremely loving and supportive husband who strongly encouraged me to return home and get into the Doctor as soon as I could. I remember the look on the Radiologist’s face when he did the biopsy. He didn’t have to say anything. I knew it was cancer.
I underwent a double mastectomy the week of Thanksgiving. I woke up with 2 scars extending from each of my armpits to my cleavage with no nipples. So many thoughts racing through my mind. Would I ever be able to wear a bathing suit? How can I ever let my husband see me nude again? I didn’t even like looking in the mirror at myself. After 3 surgeries and tattooed nipples, I still found something wrong in the mirror. I had a perfectionist for a surgeon. There was nothing more surgery could do. It was truly within me. I was convinced that I wasn’t as beautiful as before. I was convinced that others would see me differently. And I was right. My husband did see me differently. He thought I was even more beautiful. And my friends and family saw me as a Survivor. I was guilty of putting off “check-ups” because there was never a good time to take off. If I could encourage even one person to book a mammogram sharing my story, it's worth it. You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but choosing your attitude and how you respond to the experience is within your control. I chose to stay positive and share my story with others. What makes me stay positive and feel beautiful is a bold pink lip and a smoky eye. It reminds me of my inner strength and the ability to survive.
For me, beauty is within your attitude and spirit" -Sharla McAmis, Vice President, Sales, @makeupforeverofficial
