Unapologetic Awareness

We first came across Emily Hopper on Instagram and absolutely loved the edginess we saw in her posts.

While it was her powerful statements that originally caught our eye, it’s Emily’s perseverance and positivity that have simply left us in awe of this incredible 32-year-old breast cancer thriver.
