Breast Cancer Survivor Jennifer Dy-Tiapco is proud to participate in a fundraising campaign for the Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).

The 66-year-old was first diagnosed with cancer in 2000. In January of this year, it came back and she had a mastectomy on the same breast where the tumor was removed.

Ms. Dy-Tiapco said she is proud to be part of the Bakers Delight Pink Bun campaign, which gives 100 percent of Fun Bun sales to the BCNA.

She said she wanted to tell people affected by breast cancer that it’s “not the end of the world.”

“Early detection is key to the best treatment for recovery,” said Ms. Dy-Tiapco.

“Positive thinking is the best way to deal with this. That’s my opinion.

“The fact that I had cancer twice didn’t scare or worry me. I know I’m in good hands. Trust your doctors and always ask questions,” she said.

Ms. Dy-Tiapco said she wanted to thank the BCNA for the opportunity to share her recovery journey.

“I acknowledge everything [BCNA’s] work and I hope [BCNA will] gain the strength to carry on [BCNA’s] commitment to supporting our community,” she said.

The Bakers Delight BCNA fundraising campaign ends May 18, but donations to the organization are welcome year-round.
