Shona Kel­way is an in­cred­i­bly coura­geous woman.

As Emily re­ports on P1 and P3, the Pukekohe lo­cal has not only bat­tled breast can­cer, but she is bravely fronting the New Zealand Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion’s aware­ness cam­paign.

Shona is one of three sur­vivors putting their chest on dis­play for this month’s cam­paign.

Pho­tographed as mas­ter­piece paint­ings which fea­tured mod­els with vis­ual signs of breast can­cer, the mes­sage of the cam­paign is to re­mind women to know their breasts.

Oc­to­ber is Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month, which also of­fers the op­por­tu­nity to sup­port the New Zealand Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion char­ity.
