MEET LAST YEAR’S win­ner

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Special Mum -

Farrah Mil­lar, 38, was crowned 2016 Mum of the Year as part of the Mother & Baby Awards held in Septem­ber. Af­ter try­ing for years to con­ceive, Farrah has two mir­a­cle ba­bies un­der two and was di­ag­nosed with breast cancer just 18 hours af­ter her youngest child was born. Since that time, Farrah has un­der­gone a dou­ble mas­tec­tomy and con­tin­ues to en­cour­age women to self-check their breasts using the hash­tag #check­y­our­boo­bies.

Farrah’s gen­eros­ity also blew away the M&B team, di­vid­ing her $5000 Ba­bies ”R” Us voucher among the five fi­nal­ists.

“This has been a bril­liant op­por­tu­nity to share my story and en­cour­age other women to self-check their breasts,” Farrah says. “It was just so spe­cial to be recog­nised as wor­thy of this honour.”
