Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign 2014 – Sally’s Story

 

 

In 2012 one of my dearest friends, Sally, was diagnosed with breast cancer. The diagnosis not only came as an enormous shock but, as you will see, the timing was unbelievably cruel. Sally feels very strongly about trying to help others in the same situation and so she has participated, along with her Mum and daughter, in this year’s Estée Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, “Hear our stories. Share yours.”  which is designed to create a global community of strength and support through storytelling.

 

The 2014 BCA Campaign shares the authentic, inspirational stories of brave women who have faced breast cancer, and the loved ones who supported them throughout the experience. The global campaign can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/user/BCACampaign or you can visit www.youtube.com/BCACampaignUK to watch the powerful stories of five UK women. If you feel inspired to share your own story (in words/photo/video) you can do so the global microsite: www.BCACampaign.com, using the hashtag #BCAstrength.

 

Sally and her family went through her treatment with unbelievable grace and positivity. I am very proud to be her friend.

 

Many thanks to the The Estée Lauder Companies (UK) for allowing us to show this on our site.
