Four months after giving birth to her first child, Australian fashion designer Camilla Franks has announced that she's been diagnosed with breast cancer.
She announced the news in an emotional Instagram post that featured a lovely photo of her family at sunset.
"This year, 18,000 women in this backyard of ours will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Today, I am one of them.
"Like anyone who has felt the unrelenting terror of being diagnosed, cancer was certainly never part of my plan. It’s something that JP and I have spent the last few days trying to process and confront.
"Like all life’s adversities, we are choosing to unite and face this one with acceptance, endurance and love. This is the only way – and I have the best kind of love by my side.
"As you know, my beautiful Luna Gypsy arrived only a few months ago, and it is her joy and warmth that remind me that this is a journey I will embark on with courage – for her and for us.
"The world of CAMILLA will continue to shine brightly, and while I won’t be stepping away completely, I know my tribe will continue to dance and bloom in my short absence.
"While I know I have your love and support, I also kindly request personal privacy whilst I enter the battlefield. This by no means is an easy chapter, but one I hope to share with you all once I am back on track. Love Milla xx"
Camilla has only just returned to work following months of maternity leave and Camilla CEO Jane McNally told The Daily Telegraph that their founder is incredibly loved and that they will be supporting her during her treatment.
"We have no doubt that Camilla will face the challenging weeks ahead with her usual determination and exceptional fighting spirit. The love and support of her entire tribe is with her always."
Our thoughts are with Camilla and her family.
