This week we celebrate women who share Kate's Strength, Resilience, and Achievements on our blog & stories.
It is understood that adversities are part and parcel of everyone’s life, and women often must go the extra mile to overcome them. Kate fought back despite the unfair cards fate dealt her and will always remain inspiring to so many.
This week we will celebrate inspiring ladies who, like Kate, also established businesses whilst undergoing health challenges. The strength of these ladies and their tenacity is the common thread.
We are super excited to introduce you to Lizzie England you may have seen this Super Woman on Instagram, she's somewhat famous for her reels!
Delighted to introduce you to 'Lizzi England'.
32 years old, Mum of 3 beautiful children, aged 3,4 and 10 and married to Taylor.
Lizzie was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2019 whilst pregnant with her third child. She had to undergo treatment throughout her pregnancy, but thankfully delivered Violet safely and continues with treatment, where she reached NED in June 2020.
She was diagnosed with secondaries in July 2021, a day after her 31st birthday. It took a long time to get diagnosed; the pain was dismissed for a long time as wear and tear or being too young for metastatic breast cancer despite being diagnosed with primary Breast Cancer at the age of 29.
Lizzi lives with secondaries in her bone, that being her spine, pelvis and sternum.
She’s on palliative cancer treatment, desperate to live life as normally as possible.
Apart from her children, one of her greatest achievements was being a serving front-line Police officer. However, she has recently had to make the tough decision to be medically retired.
Since then, she started creating a number of small personalised gifts and named the business after her two daughters - Violet Ivy Gifts. Since then, she has expanded the range and now offers a multitude of cute colourful gifts to suit anyone and everyone. Since starting in April 2022, it has gone from strength to strength. Not only does this provide a source of income to a family of five, but it also gives Lizzi that much-needed normality, a sense of purpose and something to strive for.
Here are a few of her colourful creations, which can be purchased here on Etsy
