My name is Anna from Australia and I am the owner of an after care boutique in New Delhi. In 1999, I got breast cancer myself and my right breast was amputated. Lymph nodes were removed and it was found that some of the 13 glands were infected. They were followed with heavy chemo, 36 irradiations and stem cell treatment.
When I was reasonably restored, I had to look for a breast prosthesis and matching lingerie. I finally came to a specialty shop in breast prostheses. The moment I entered, I knew, I would like to do that too. Together with my boyfriend, we contacted health insurers and suppliers. A property to start the business was thus found.
On June 3, 2000, we had the opening of our specialty shop in breast prostheses, matching lingerie and swimwear. In 2002 I had a second breast stimulation, which was preventive. After 5 years my boyfriend stopped working and I only went on to another job. At this moment, I have been in New Delhi for more than 5 years. I still do my work every day. I follow all new developments in prostheses and always try out all new products myself. I hope to do this work for years to come.
I love the way that I can help people with my work. Fighting cancer is really hard and I want to support everyone who has it. I want everyone to know that they are not fighting cancer alone. I want everyone to have hope and can live happy.
