When Champagne Joy walked into a room, you knew it. She had a way of materializing like a force of nature β€” like a storm β€” rather than a regular human being. It wasn't just her badass personal style, complete with neon eyebrows and lipstick, skull motifs, and quirky Japanese designers: There was an inevitability about anything she said; you had no choice but to be swept away by her, to nod your head yes. She could have used this special gift of hers to accomplish pretty much anything, but she chose to devote it to tirelessly advocating for the more than 100 women and men who die every day of metastatic breast cancer β€” a disease that she died from yesterday. Refinery29 is honored to have had the chance to partner with Champagne and #Cancerland to spread this important message and share the stories of the people who face Stage IV breast cancer every day β€” and we're committed to continuing her mission. Tap the link in bio to read all of the details.
