Christine concluded her post by saying: "I have always supported breast cancer charities as four of my aunties have also had breast cancer and my mum has asked me to continue helping raise money and awareness (the reason I’m sharing this) she has the biggest heart and always just wants to help others.
"#MyMum #MyInspo #MyMa You will smash it mum. C."
