In light of the recent positive news (I shared it via Instagram), I wanted to share a store that is dear to me and had an amazing opportunity to work on a photoshoot with for their website. Hope 25 is an online store designed for young cancer fighters. Their products provide inspirational products, wigs, and gift bags. The owner herself was diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age, at 25 to be exact and she is a mighty fighter! She overcame a lot of hard news and still found hope.  During her diagnosis and treatments, she realized a lot of stores for cancer fighters were not made for young adults.  I also felt the same way too when I was looking for hats, wigs, and shirts. It all made me feel too old.

Luckily, Hope 25 has the cutest products that I can relate to. It is a combination of my aesthetics and cancer fighter motivations. If you guys remember my story about my diagnosis, I mentioned that 'The Fight Song' by Rachel Platten was my fight song. Every word and lyrics, I was able to relate to my life. So When I randomly came across Hope 25, the first thing I saw was their shirt 'I Still Got a Lot of Fight Left in Me', and there I knew I loved the store.

If you look closely to my second outfit, I am wearing a boxing glove necklace aka "Punch Fear in the Face' necklace. This necklace is a symbol to not let a chronic illness get the best of you and that you can overcome anything. The best part of purchasing this necklace is for every necklace bought, a second one will  be donated to someone fighting cancer.  The necklace also comes in gold, silver, and black (I am wearing rose gold). You can nominate a cancer fighter to receive this necklace here.

Hope 25 also offers a 'Bag of Hope - Cancer Gift Bag'.  This gift bag is for someone who has been recently diagnosed with cancer. It's a bag filled with so much encouragement and motivation and every single item is super cute!

Thank you again for all your support throughout my journey. You have no idea how much it means to me and I wish I can give you all big hug. The amount of support is amazing. I really think it is what makes this fight easier. I'll provide more updates soon about my next steps in a few weeks! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Happy Friday!

  39. You are such a strong and incredible individual. I love what this brand represents and what you stand for. My friend got a rare thoracic cancer when we were in high school. 1 in 100,000 women get it and she was so inspirational and strong, but there really weren't many options back then and Hope 25 sounds amazing. Your outfits are beautiful and it's really amazing seeing your blog grow and getting to know you this way. Instagram is great for some inspiration, but I think your words and stories here inspire many more. :)
