As many of you already know, The Laser Lounge is extremely excited to be attending the Rescu-Me Life Make Over event to be held at the Hilton Sydney on Saturday 29th June! Bahar Etminan, Founder and Editor of Rescu.com.au is hosting the Fashion, Beauty and Lifestyle event of the year. For us, we are personally very thrilled that the inspirational Kerri-Anne Kennerley will be our MC for the day!

Kerri-Anne Kennerley is a fixture in Australian households, having most recently competed on Channel 7’s ‘Dancing With the Stars”. She is one of Australia’s female icons and, an inspiration to women around the world, having overcome her public battle with Breast Cancer.

“My whole world was turned upside down last year when I was diagnosed with cancer,” she says. “It sounds cliché, but although Australian women have a one in eight risk of developing breast cancer, never in my wildest dreams did I think it would happen to me. I have no family history of it and had mammograms regularly, so it came as such a shock.” Kennerley said to The Daily Telegraph.

Did you know???

  • Every day in Australia, more than 30 women discover they have breast cancer.
  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women aged over 35 years — 29% of all cancers diagnosed.
  • 9 out of 10 women who get breast cancer do not have a family history of the disease.

Kennerley not only has overcome her battle with Breast Cancer, but she has also revealed her latest healthy fight, shedding light on Australia’s crippling Vitamin D deficiency. Even though Kennerley thought she was doing enough to remain healthy, she did not realise her commitment to sun safety was actually preventing her from obtaining the adequate and safe levels of UV exposure.

Now, The Laser Lounge motto is sun protection, sun protection, sun protection! However, in saying this, one must research the recommended amount of time to spend in the sun (with the correct sunscreen and UV protection) in order to obtain healthy Vitamin D levels, preventing bone disease and specifically, Osteoporosis!

Overall, what we find most inspiring about Kerri-Anne Kennerley, is not necessarily the strength she has shown to overcome these battles, but her commitment to speaking up about her health issues and the statistics in Australia in order to help women around the country.
