Welcome Dragons Abreast Visitors

Hi there.. well the time is getting close for the Dragons Abreast competitors to arrive in Sunny Queensland. The last week or so has seen record breaking rain fall on the Sunshine Coast where the event will be held. This should make for some very green scenery in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Organise a trip to Maleny and Montville. Simply beautiful little towns in the ranges behind the coast.

Many of our visitors are already making contact with us here at Spirit of Life to organise new swim wear.. and boy do we have a new and exciting range just landed. Along with some new pretty mastectomy bras, it really is worth a visit to see our boutique... it's very different

From the Sunshine Coast, you can take a bus down to Brisbane's Transit Centre and from there we're simply one stop along on the Ipswich train to Milton station and we're across the road from the station.
Let us know you're with Dragons Abreast and we'll give you 10% discount on all lingerie and swimsuits.

Please cut and paste our web site address into your browser to view our range:

Enjoy your stay.

We're in Germany, visiting Anita

After a rather interesting flight with Emirates, we are finally meeting with Anita at their factory in Bavaria. Next years' selection of mastectomy swimsuits is amazing. Andrea from Anita has been showing Mark & I some incredibly stunning swimsuits and I am placing substantial orders for our boutique in Brisbane for delivery from September onwards. The factory is surrounded by the most beautiful forests, it is a very pretty area of Europe.

Biloela BCAQ Forum was great!

Well, Mark & I are back after the BCAQ forum in Biloela. We travelled over 1400 Km for this event, and what a great time we all had. Apart from myself talking to ladies about post breast surgery lingerie choices, there were also speakers talking on subjects as diverse as diet, surgical options and post diagnosis management of breast cancer. In fact 2 doctors flew in for just the day.

We always find that the local ladies in these rural areas appreciate very much theses forums and BCAQ are to be commended for their on going work in this area. On Saturday night after the event, we were made very welcome by David & Bridgette Corr at their property "Stoneleigh" for dinner. It was a beautiful night for us all with wonderful fellowship and the most amazing moon rise. Mark has posted a couple of pictures taken on Saturday.

BCAQ forum at Biloela, June 30, 2007

Hi there. It's Sunday afternoon and I'm at the Boutique sorting out just what I will take to the BCAQ forum in Biloela next week. You see, the Breast Cancer Association of Queensland (BCAQ) is a wonderful organisation that organises educational forums on breast cancer for women living in rural areas. In the past Spirit of Life Boutique has joined with BCAQ in St George and also Mt Isa.

Education is everything when it comes to breast cancer, and BCAQ brings a range of experts to these events to educate and inform ladies about this important subject. For our part, Spirit of Life will be showing ladies that they have a wide range of choices available to them post mastectomy. From fashionable lingerie to beautiful mastectomy swim suits and even bikinis, we have it all.

Yes, I'm looking forward to this event as they are always lots of fun. We'll be loading up "Britannia" our faithful Land Rover later this week and heading bush.

Cheers for now.

Some thoughts from Debra

Hello my name is Debra Taylor, this is all new for me so please be patient. I have been a corsetière for over 20 years now. One of the biggest changes I have seen over the last few years is the number of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age. Because of this I have been slowly but surely increasing the amount of fashion mastectomy lingerie in my boutique. I'll talk more about this later.
