In The Pink

In The Pink..

Six years ago my mother was experiencing tenderness in her right breast. Fearing the worst, she tried in vain to book an appointment for a breast screening at Guy's & St Thomas' hospital via her GP. She endured a lengthy wait - so lengthy in fact that she decided to seek private attention at the Lister hospital. There, her worst fears were confirmed. Not only did she have breast cancer (she had a cancerous growth 4cm in diameter), the nature of her cancer was particularly aggressive. Thanks to the swift excision of the lump and the chemotherapy and radiotherapy she received at the Royal Marsden hospital, my mother was given a second chance of life. My mother handled her illness with tremendous grace and dignity. Though her treatment left her perpetually fatigued and robbed her of all her hair (including her eyebrows and eyelashes), she never once complained. Having my mother in my life means the world to me and I'll be forever in debt to all the wonderful medical staff who tended to her in her darkest hours. It's therefore with great pride, that I draw attention to the Breast Cancer Campaign and their collaboration with clothing retailer Damart. Feisty Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff models this year's ultra-cute (and cosy) limited edition pink cami with over the knee socks from Damart. The cami is available in sizes 8 to 24 and is priced at just £14. The socks retail for £10, with £3.40 being donated to the cause from ever item sold. Women all over the world continue to battle breast cancer. It's for this reason that I urge you all to help Breast Cancer Awareness by snapping up the fabulous limited edition cami and socks. They'd make an ideal Christmas gift for friends and family, so splash out and do your bit to safeguard the lives of women the world over.
