MEET LAST YEAR’S winner
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.”
