In October of 2015 at just 28 years of age, Amber Whalan’s life was turned upside down – she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Not only was she young, fit and healthy, she had three children under five. From there it began spreading to her lymph nodes, which resulted in surgery, followed by four months of chemotherapy and 20 rounds of radiation. In April of 2016 Amber finished her treatment and will be technically in remission in November of this year. Only knowing Amber for the last six months (meeting through social media) I have been blown away by her poise, strength and courage. She continues to work hard and raise her three beautiful children (Oliver, Hazel & baby Chase) with her adoring husband, Ben. This year Amber was made an official ambassador for Pink Hope and the face of Bright Pink Lipstick Day.
In honour of Amber’s battle with breast cancer she has decided to co-host her own cocktail party to raise money for Bright Pink Lipstick Day 2016, which goes towards breast cancer research. Together with my gorgeous bestie, Jo French, owner and director of Shanghai Suzy, all three of us (with our pink powers combined!) will be co-hosting our very own BPLD cocktail party in Melbourne, on Friday 23rd September. All funds raised will assist Pink Hope in ensuring every individual can assess, manage and reduce their risk of breast and ovarian cancer – event details below and tickets are now available to purchase >

WHERE: Speakeasy Kitchen Bar, 359 Chapel Street, South Yarra (Melbourne)
COST: $90 – this ticket includes: drinks, finger food, some amazing guest speakers & live entertainment
