Kerri’s Story

By Kerri Buttery

Only a few days left in PinkTober

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far to Mater Chicks in Pink. I appreciate everyone's support.

I am now 6 weeks post double mastectomy and reconstruction and really starting to feel like I'm getting back into some level of "normal". I still have days when all I can do is rest because of fatigue or muscle spasms in my ribs. But the other pain has gone. So close to my skin and tissue being healed from surgery too (almost!). 

As I've mentioned before, Mater Chicks in Pink have been a great support for me and this fundraiser is running until 31st October 2020. I had an original goal of $500 and all of you have helped to smash that goal. So I've raised it to $1000 to try and get there in the next 4 days! So close!

Please share and help raise awareness for breast cancer during Pinktober.

My achievements!

My Updates

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – My Story

Monday 5th Oct
I didn’t know much about breast cancer before July 2020, because I didn’t need to. However, I have realised that there are some things in life that everyone needs to be aware of, otherwise you won’t have a chance of early detection. This article tells my story along with a few things that I have learnt over the past few months…

Thank you to my Supporters
