Meet our Lounge Legends, young women who have each experienced unique and emotional journeys with cancer.... be prepared to feel empowered, a little emotional and totally inspired!
“Around 4 years ago, I found a lump in my right breast and yeah… I was quite lazy with getting it checked, I kind of assumed it was nothing. I think just like every young person, life just gets busy…”
A few years ago, I felt a lump in my boob. Like most people would, I instantly jumped to the conclusion that it was cancer. It was quite a scary time, and I felt like I had nobody to speak to about it because I didn’t know anybody else my age who had a similar experience.
It took me a while to get the courage to get it checked, and it took 5 trips to the doctor’s to come to the conclusion that we needed to remove it.
I was lucky enough to receive negative results to a malignant tumour, however, early diagnosis does save lives, and if my story can encourage even one person to check their boob/body, and potentially save their life, my job is done.
I shared my story on Instagram a few months ago, which is what led Lounge to reach out to me about being a part of their Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. Of course, I jumped at the idea! I got to meet the most inspiring group of gorgeous, empowering young ladies who all had stories to share, and I couldn’t be more grateful to the Lounge team for making this campaign happen.
My tip: know your body, check your boobs regularly, and DON'T be lazy with getting checkups. Health is EVERYTHING!
“I think I started getting so terrified that i didn’t want to go and get checked almost, because it was such a scary thing for me…”
