October is Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and provides an opportunity for us all to focus on breast cancer and the impact on those affected by the disease in our community.
Breast Cancer remains the most common cancer among Australian women (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer). Survival rates continue to improve thanks to early detection and continuous research efforts of clinical led organisations such as the Breast Cancer Research Centre of WA.
The Prospect Project is incredibly proud to bring you this all pink beauty – matte pink vessel, pink label, pink wax and if pink was a smell, it would be THIS!
This one-of-a-kind indulgent fragrance has been expertly blended in-house and combines notes of marshmallow and blush rose with sugar syrup and a soft touch of vanilla, sandalwood and musk.
We will be donating a whopping $20 from the sale of each and every one of these candles directly to the Breast Cancer Research Centre WA and stock is strictly limited.
In April 2022 I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 36 years old. There is less than 0.5% chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer at this age and testing revealed the cancer had spread to two lymph nodes. My treatment involved a mastectomy, a full lymph node clearance, 6 months of chemotherapy which I have almost completed and 5 weeks of radiation. Early detection is vital so please prioritise your health and if you notice any unusual changes in your breasts it is vital to have them checked. I have received an overwhelming amount of support from family and friends that have all helped to keep me afloat during my treatment. I am so passionate about research that the breast cancer research centre of WA conducts which is increasing survival rates so please support this incredible cause whilst snagging yourself an amazing smelling candle!
In May this year I got some very unexpected new that I have breast cancer.
I say this every day but I owe my life to my incredible GP who managed to feel my tiny but aggressive tumours I had no idea even existed.
I was booked in for surgery within a week , during that week I managed to get COVID which luckily postponed my breast surgery. Luckily because in that 4 week window I found out I was 9 weeks pregnant. COVID literally saved my baby’s life!
Pregnancy meant that surgery would still go ahead but I’d need a mastectomy to minimise the chance of me having to have surgery again and that my only safe treatment option would be 16 rounds of chemotherapy until baby Ivey arrived.
Both my pregnancy and chemotherapy treatment are going amazingly well. Modern medicine is bad ass, I am able to keep working and lead a normal life. n’t believe everything you read on the internet about chemo – I had to stop reading and researching everything and hope that my journey would be a positive and different one to everything I was reading.
For many of us lucky ones chemo is completely manageable.
I just want women who are not high risk, relatively young and healthy with no family history of breast cancer or genetic factors like myself to please please check your boobies – early detection has saved my life – my story would’ve been a completely different one in a year as my tiny tumours were very aggressive.
Because of early detection I will get to see my baby grow and live a full happy life just please take the time to check your boobies!
