Hi everyone 👋🏽

As you may or may not know our lovely Libby has recently been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She is only 26 years old and has a two year old son, Abel. This illness involves chemotherapy which will result in her losing her hair, which i know is going to be extremely hard on her & a knock to her confidence, on top of everything else she will be going through. If you follow her private Instagram where she has been posting her journey, you’ll know she can receive a grant for a wig but that is only $400, when human hair wigs retail for around $2000. I have set this up to for anyone is interested in donating money for her to be able to purchase a nice human hair wig, and for other expenses. I think this will help her be more confident when going out in public, to work, and feel more “normal” overall. This money will also help support Libby with paying to get to appointments, treatments etc and when she needs to have time off work resulting in less pay. No pressure at all if you don’t want to or aren’t able to help, we just want to do something to help Libby and her beautiful son Abel and this felt like the best way.

Update 🦋  16 November 2019

Hey everyone! Libby & I thought that given it has been a few weeks with lots of things happening, it was time we gave an update! Thank you again to everyone who has donated, shared, commented, sent their love & everything in between. It’s beyond appreciated and doesn’t go unnoticed 💘 round two of chemo happened yesterday, with an upped dose of anti-nausea medication this time as last time Libby was unfortunately extremely sick afterward. Happy to report the upped medication has helped and Libby is feeling really good this time! The lump itself has gotten smaller 🙌🏽 which is amazing news! A few Saturdays ago Libby had a shaving ceremony where we all gathered to have a laugh and a drink and something to eat while we supported her in shaving her hair! The atmosphere was lovely & thank you again to everyone who helped organise, provided venue, & came to support 😘 the love surrounding Libby & Abel through this time is amazing! Sunday just gone Libby’s hair that was left began to fall out so rather than deal with that (as it can be irritating and quite painful) Libby clean shaved her hair right off with the help of her partner Jackson, which was a big step but she rocks it as usual! Libby has now received her wig which is great, thank you again to everyone who made this possible! She is loving her new colour and style that the wig has given her. Another amazing opportunity has come up for Libby to have her brows microbladed/tattooed by a lovely local artist who has generously offered to do this for free in support of Libby and her journey 💕 we’ll be keeping the artist’s details to ourselves for privacy reasons, but we are so so grateful for this offer as this will further help Libby to feel normal and confident in her own skin as her journey progresses and she loses her eyebrow hair due to the chemo - can’t thank the lovely woman who’s offered to do this enough, such a beautiful gesture 🦋

So that’s what’s been happening lately!

Thank you again to everyone for their ongoing support of Libby, from near or far. All the love and kindness makes this journey that much easier and more comfortable for Libby, and it is so so appreciated by her & her family. xxxx
