Thanks for stopping by!

Hey! So glad you found me. Cancer Fashionista wasn’t developed in a board room. It wasn’t something that came to me in a dream. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was like, “Where’s The Vogue of Breast Cancer? Where do I find a fabulous wig? What should I do about my lashes? What kind of bra should I wear?Here I am. Here it is. Here we go……

You are Beautiful Inside and Out

Can a new pair of pumps or a tube of red lipstick change your breast cancer diagnosis? Nope. Not even close. But looking your best does help you feel better.  And why not pamper yourself even more when you’re going through treatment….I mean who’s better than YOU?! 


What People are Saying

I wish I never had breast cancer, but I’ll tell you this. I’ve met some of the most AMAZING people, brands and non-profit organizations along the way. When I invited them to write a little something about me for this testimonial section, I pretty much blushed after reading each one. I am one lucky girl. Thank you all, and I hope I continue to make you VERY proud!
