It's already been a year since Chrissy Amphlett passed away following her valiant fight with breast cancer, at the age of 53.
Chrissy was passionate about spreading awareness around the importance of early detection of breast cancer, and wanted her song 'I touch myself' to become for women's health around the world.
Well it's working.
Gathering nine brilliant Australian female artists - this is the outcome. Pretty poignant. I think Chrissy would dig it too.
Check your breasts. Touch your shelf. Feel your lumps, bumps, get to know your body - and if in doubt - get them checked out.
Get on Instagram - take a selfie - and tag it #itouchmyselfie - share it with your friends, Facebook, go nuts.
