Breast cancer awareness 2023

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month & at Fella Hamilton we wanted to support the incredible work of Breast Cancer Network Australia. BCNA is Australia's leading Breast Cancer consumer organisation that work tirelessly to ensure all Australians who are affected receive the very best care, treatment & support.

We are all too familiar with the devastating impact of cancer. This relentless disease not only robs us of the women we hold dear but also shatters our peace of mind. Breast cancer, in particular, is a pervasive force, leaving no one untouched. For women (& men), it is an ever-present concern, a shadow that looms over our lives. We grapple with our own fears, undergo testing, and invariably have a connection to someone who has faced this diagnosis.


With the help of artist and Fella Hamilton collaborator Anna Blatman, for the month of October we are donating $5 from the purchase of every Anna Blatman Tea Towel (RRP $24.95) to BCNA. Packaged in a box, the tea towel is a great gift to give a friend and help out many women at the same time.

Anna Blatman is a globally acclaimed Australian artist, celebrated for her vivid and dynamic depictions of flowers, animals, and landscapes. Her journey as a professional artist commenced in 1993, and her remarkable creations have graced galleries and museums worldwide.

Anna’s artworks are distinguished by their bold brushwork, expressive palette, and a whimsical touch of humour. She often portrays her subjects with exaggeration and stylisation, creating a sense of movement and vitality. Her paintings are known for their positivity and uplifting energy, reflecting her connection with nature and her intention to spread joy through her creations.

Anna is a suporter of BCNA and her painting featuring the two birds on the tea towel is titled Fifi and Andie, in honour of two inspirational women in her life who were diagnosed with breast cancer. 


Fifi, a devoted mother of three, carries a family history marked by the shadow of cancer. Her heart brims with gratitude towards Breast Screening Victoria, whose unwavering reminders served as a beacon of vigilance during her bustling life. Fifi's appreciation extends to BCNA and the extraordinary individuals who stand by her on this challenging journey, among them her steadfast, longtime friend and support, Anna Blatman. To read more about Fifi’s story see the link here.


Andie received the distressing diagnosis of Paget's Disease in her breast at the tender age of 27. She embarked on a gruelling journey of countless appointments and rigorous tests, followed by five months of chemotherapy and ultimately a mastectomy. In her challenging path, Andie draws inspiration from Anna's active engagement with the BCNA, finding their invaluable resources to be a guiding light in her battle.
