This lovely lady has also blossomed in the industry over the past few months. Olivia began growing a following on social media at the age of 22 after documenting her cancer diagnosis and journey on her Instagram page, and has since started her own support website cancerchicks.co.uk. Her channels continue to feature her journey but also her personal style, hair growth tips, and her tanning routine is a regularly requested feature. Her YouTube Channel (which also launched just last month) has been getting between 5,000 – 12,000 views per video. A combination of her positive outlook on her diagnosis, desire to help others experiencing the same, and her all round cute fashion sense make her a really great follow and an inspiration for many (just spend a few minutes scrolling through the comments she receives).
