I'm Emily; a mama, mrs, artist & activist from Wisconsin!
In 2017 at the age of 31, I was diagnosed with stage III triple negative breast cancer. My personal experience - along with the insights I've gained and the community I love - inspire me to use my voice and artistic abilities to advocate for breast cancer awareness and human rights. EMPOWERHAUS is my eclectic e-boutique which serves as a home for everything I create and curate from cute trendy and vintage apparel to handcrafted art gifts, decor and more.
Black and white without a pink ribbon for a reason.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I went searching for "the" thing to wear to chemo. I was picturing something that reflected my sense of humor & style, that would inspire me to get out of bed and go to treatment. "Badass" would've worked (note: I later made it myself!) What I found was that the majority of breast cancer awareness products I came across were aimed at saving boobs rather than the person 😡 That experience inspired me to create my collection of black & white breast cancer awareness tees without pink ribbons; empowering the thrivers wearing them by giving them an opportunity to start conversations about breast cancer, spread awareness about cancer and aesthetic flat closure.
ALL WHILE doing it through self love and fashion!
