Cassie Lewis - speaking about why Pink October is important to her:
"Other then the fun and laughter we all have during Pink October, it's the awareness and funds that we raise to help support those fighting breast cancer, we all have someone or know someone that this has affected.
I have lost one of the most amazing humans in my life to this type of cancer and since then the passion I have for this has grown massively!
Jo was diagnosed at the age of 34 with triple negative breast cancer, which is a cancer that isn't linked to any of the 3 main hormones that breast cancer is usually linked to.
She also had the brca1 gene meaning she had a DNA defect where her DNA doesn't repair itself like everybody else's does. So people with the brca1 gene are predisposed to getting cancers for this reason.
When Jo was diagnosed she became involved in a 24hr cancer walk in Sydney. Her goal was to walk for the full 24hrs but unfortunately she couldn't get there, although she almost did the first year!
The money raised at the walk goes to the Cancer Therapy Centre where she and many others spent most of their time.
We have now taken over her team known as 'Jo's Crew'.
I have 2 salons and we hold a Pink Day in each salon each year one after another, decorating both salons with bras, balloons and much more. We hold a huge raffle to raise extra funds for NBCF, the salon donates $5-$10 from every client booked in the whole of October. We have a beautiful vintage coffee van, 'Whisk Away Vintage Van', owned by Michelle Hill from Trangie NSW.
After our pink days, we drive to Sydney the same night and get ready for a massive 24hr all nighter walk - we try and raise as much as we can for the Cancer Therapy Centre there as well.
This year my Nonni (Irene Adamson) from Bathurst NSW has kindly made pink beanies to sell at the walk; however, if the walk is called off due to COVID-19 we will sell them from the salon and donate the money afterwards.
If some thing excites me, it's doing things like this. I know Jo would be super proud and would love to be here to help with this. I know the first Pink Day I held with Foil Me her and I needed up in the local newspaper and she was so so excited about it all.
She was a person that would be there for anyone and give the shirt off her back.
Her passion was to help others and hoped that by telling her story she could help others understand that it's super important to check your body and know your body.
I do this with pride for my girl Jo every year and I will continue to do so until I'm 96!
