our ELLY for HOPE ambassador and warrior.
I am Babette. I am a breast cancer survivor.
I was diagnosed with Early-Stage Triple Negative Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, Grade 3 in April 2020 at the age of 32.
When I heard that Chemotherapy is my only treatment option, I immediately cried about my hair. During my year of treatment, I received 16 Chemotherapy infusions. My hair fell out two weeks after the first round of chemo which is referred to as the Red Devil.
Not having hair, eyebrows and lashes, is very traumatic.
You don’t recognise yourself in the mirror and it has a shocking effect on how we perceive ourselves to be. Hair is part of our identity and how we portray ourselves to the world. Although it doesn’t define us, it affects our identity, femininity and sexuality.
I am currently 3 years cancer free. I am proud and honoured to say that I am a Brand Ambassador for ELLY that came into my life and changed it. ELLY’S Hope range has helped me grow back my hair faster, stronger and healthier than any other hair brand I had tried before. ELLY has given me the confidence to live my life without worrying about my hair again. I love having beautiful thick hair and am thankful for the ELLY team that supports me with life after cancer.
With love and hope,
From the ELLY Team:
YOU are a all warrior’s, YOU are all brave, and we salute all of YOU!
