THREE years ago, Farrah Millar was diagnosed with breast cancer just 18 hours after her son was born.

The 40-year-old said it was difficult to recall the day she heard the words “you have breast cancer” and the thoughts that went through her mind because she had come so far since then.

“There is no shame in battling breast cancer and there should be more acceptance and understanding of the toll it can take on your body,” she said.

Ms Millar is among four West Australian women – Lisa Anne Evans (40), Lisa Maree Brook (32) and Jennifer Rowe (41) – who are Model Ambassadors for the 2020 So Brave calendar.

The breast cancer survivors will be transformed by body-paint artist Kyla Morgan this month to appear in the fourth annual breast cancer fundraising calendar, which will be revealed in September.“I don’t want to just raise money for this issue, I want to raise awareness of just how impactful breast cancer can be – not only on your body, but on your motherhood, your relationships, your self-worth and belief and your entire life direction,” Ms Millar said.

Money raised from the sale of calendars will go towards So Brave’s programs of empowerment, education and advocacy and help fund breast cancer research.
