Adelaide jewellery label Pop Rock Park is seeing summer in black and white to raise funds for the Letitia Linke Research Foundation.
Letitia was just 34 when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Four years later, the much-loved mother-of-two lost her brave battle with the disease which claims the life of one woman in Australia every eight hours.
Inspired by her eponymous style – classic black and white with a dash of pink – Pop Rock Park has created the ‘Letitia Stack’.
She was known to have exquisite taste and was a gifted interior decorator, based in country South Australia. The black and white stripes in the bracelet pay homage to her classic fashion and the dash of pink is a tribute to her signature pink lippy.
All funds from the sale of the six-bracelet stack go to the Foundation, formed by Letitia’s family to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer and fund research for an early detection test.
As Letitia fought her battle against ovarian cancer, she campaigned fiercely to educate women about the disease, and raised funds for much needed research.
Nationally, four women every day are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. As there is no early detection test, about 70 per cent of women receive their diagnosis at an advanced stage and less than 30 per cent live beyond five years from diagnosis.
Letitia’s greatest wish was that an early detection test would be found to change the future of women like her.
Letitia sadly lost her battle in August 2018, aged 38; but her efforts to put a spotlight on ovarian cancer are continued by the Letitia Linke Research Foundation. The ‘Letitia Stack’ is $80 and all profits from the sale go to the Letitia Linke Research Foundation.
