Following gruelling chemotherapy for breast cancer and prior to a bilateral mastectomy operation, young mum Emily Searle wrote a letter to her breasts. The result was a book containing 100 letters written by women from all walks of life who have undergone surgery due to breast cancer. This sparked an idea for a project that has helped hundreds of women and their loved ones cope with their own life changing breast cancer or BRCA surgery. Emily shares that "Dear Boobs is about sharing wisdom, inspiring healing and celebrating the incredible breast cancer community."
You may have read about Emily Searle and her Dear Boobs project in a magazine, or seen her on television". This Breast Cancer Awareness Month come along to Rotorua Library to meet Emily, hear her story and help raise funds for breast cancer patients.
