Essex Calendar Girls reveal for New 2018 Calendar

A group of 10 ladies who met through their breast cancer diagnosis and treatment are raising money for charities that helped support them over the past few years by starring in and producing a calendar for 2018. The calendar is being sold in aid of Helen Rollason Cancer Charity (1052861) and Breast Cancer Care (1017658). 3 of the ladies are volunteers for Breast Cancer Care Essex Fundraisers.

The ladies hope to provide inspiration to others in a similar situation, as well as showing that you can still be beautiful post breast cancer treatment. All of the courageous ladies within the calendar have undergone some form of breast surgery including mastectomies.

They also want to raise awareness that breast cancer can happen to anyone and the earlier it is caught the more treatable it is so you will see on the calendar every month a reminder to “Check your bumps for lumps”.

The brave ladies are:- Simone Hawes, Nikki Smith, Vicki McGinn, Jackie Jordan, Julie Phillipson, Nadine Trye, Tina Tucker, Linda Pennington-Benton, Colette Chandler and Jan Buchanan. A big thank you to photographer Sharon Howard, the venues and people who helped make the calendar possible as well as all the advertisers
