“Five years ago on Mother’s Day I walked in a breast cancer fundraiser walk, ravaged by almost six months of chemo it was gruelling physically but emotionally EXHILARATING,” Jenni said.

“Just seven months prior I had been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and one of my first fears was for my children. All the ‘what ifs’ ran through my head and it made me desperately sad to think they might grow up without me.

“But here we are five years on and still together. Heck I’m thriving! Every Mother’s Day I give thanks for research and fabulous medical care and take a moment to honour all the women taken too early and families without their Mum’s.”

Happy Mother’s Day to all our special mums out there! We also honour those who have lost the battle to breast cancer, and send love to the families left behind. With your support we are determined to continue improving treatments and finding a cure for this heartbreaking disease.
