In 2015 one of my twin boys ben was diagnosed with a polycystic astrocytoma brain tumour. Following brain surgery Ben had twelve rounds of chemotherapy. During this time Ben was granted a wish from STARLIGHT foundation. He and his twin brother Jack got to surf with World Chamipion Mike Fanning. He was in his 7th round of Chemotherapy and I cannot share what this wish did for Ben, me, and the whole family. Ben is now a fit strong healthy 24-year-old amazing man. We got our silver lining.
It is now a great pleasure I am on the advisory board of the STARLIGHT FOUNDATION. Part proceeds of all sales through styling and my designs goes to STARLIGHT. You can wear your style with pride knowing you have contributed to a great cause. I will till my last breath be enfettered to three remarkable doctors: Dr Steven Santorious (Ben's neurosurgeon), Dr Arthur Elise-Flint (Ben's registrar neurosurgeon and now friend), Dr Maria Kirby (Ben's chemo doctor), as well as Mike Fanning (Ben’s now friend, they keep in touch and surf together) and THE STARLIGHT FOUNDATION.
