We're going to be famous ;-) TONIGHT!

TV One, 7pm tonight. on Close Up. We're on :-)  Make sure you watch us but be warned it may make you cry :-)


  1. That was awesome, you on the telly, hope it generates lots of positive ness, take care x

  2. I watched your story on Close up tonight and have signed up to send you some milk. You are an amazing woman and with your spirit and determination the cancer has no chance.
    all the best :)

  3. Wow - What an incredible family you are and such an amazing woman. I read your blog and I am in awe of your strength.

    Stay positive x x

  4. Well done Jaynie, you are amazing, so natural,so confident and you are looking so well. You should do more on TV about breast feeding, natural birthing etc. Maybe have your own show when you are recovered?
    You have impressed me again!
    Go Jaynie go, wish you lots of luck, health and love, Bett

  5. Nice! Awesome report! you are getting the word out - no question about it! Love the haircut too!

  6. Hi Jaynie saw you on close up and you came over so well on TV !!! a natural and very passionate and your message was so clear, Well done and thanks for spreading the message for the need for milk banks and your moving story Im sure it has touched many many peoples hearts
    Thanks Tracey x

  7. Yay for knitted boobies! It was really nicely done and I hope you have milk flooding in.

  8. I was shocked at some of the rude comments on the Close Up FB page about your story.
    There were so many people saying "just give them formula".
    That was the inspiration for my Apples and Pears post (
    No one has a problem with eating pears from someone else's tree, but the second the pears become breastmilk, it is 'icky' and formula is proposed as a better option.
    I really applaude you Jaynie for speaking out about milk sharing and hopefully helping more people to realise what a wonderful thing it is.
    Lots of love to you all!

  9. Hey Jaynie - I had the very same predicament with my breastfeeding 14 month old son last October when I too was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer aged 34. There was no facility or milk bank here in Christchurch and I was forced to use bottles/formula. I praise your strength, determination and courage in sharing your story and hope it eventually leads to the establishment of a national milk bank facility for anyone else that may be in our devastating situation. Looks like I had my double mastectomy just 2 days before you (I had to have my chemo first) and if you ever want to talk about the chemo, fertility treatment or just know someone walks beside you - please get in touch. In the meantime its like a tightrope walk where you just keep putting one foot in front of the other and before you know it you'll be out the other side - albeit with a few wobbles here and there. Here's some food for thought to make you smile...
