Lia Reese Canada presents
Raised outside a tiny Canadian town of 50 people, Elly moved to Vancouver to follow her childhood dreams of traveling, meeting new people and becoming a star. She loved working as a flight attendant and took up pin-up modeling as a hobby. The young flight attendant was on the verge of fame as a plus-size model when she got the shock diagnosis of advanced ovarian cancer. But it was what she did next that really made everyone sit up and take notice.
At 25, Elly understandably thought she was still at the beginning of life. She had big plans ahead of her - she'd moved away from home to the big city, landed her dream job as a flight attendant and another career as a plus-size model beckoned. But then, after three years of irregular lower back pain and bloating that had been dismissed as nothing serious by doctors, she was suddenly diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. Her prognosis wasn't good and it would have been easy for her to curl up and retreat from public life, but Elly refused to give in.
Instead, she forged ahead and posed in many shoots, bald and scarred. One in particular, a campaign for a sports bra shot by the local lingerie shop, Forever Yours lingerie, which grabbed the attention of many. With her chin up, bald-headed and bearing a long surgery scar down her front, she posed in underwear in a campaign that went viral around the world. At the time, she didn't know whether
she'd survive to see the end of the month.
Elly says, "I wanted to show you can be beautiful when you are going through hell. You’ve just got to keep your head held high and
remember, no matter how bad it gets, people have gone through even worse .You don’t know how strong you are until you are backed into a corner. I worked really hard on all my shoots because I knew I was doing something that would help others facing cancer as well. whether I made it through the year or not, those images would always last."
She made it through her difficult year. She now has a following of over 500,000 world wide on Social. Since September of 2013 she has been apart of a ground breaking documentary called "A Perfect 14" which highlights the lack of diversity in the media for plus size models as well as her and two others journey through the industry. She has traveled to Australia, Montreal, San Francisco and New York for work and has recently signed with Dorothy Combs— a major modeling agency with years of experience . She speaks at schools to encourage body positive mentality and her inspiring story of living and modeling through cancer. Follow her Journey as she continues to Inspire us all.
Visit Elly Mayday at the Lia Reese Canada booth all weekend. Shop her lipstick, calendar, take photos and grab her autograph!

Girl Power Pilates Class - 10:00 a.m. Saturday April 22nd at Prairieland Park - $10 donation to the YWCA Saskatoon
Lead Pilates is bringing you Girl Power: Why you need to know more about your pelvic floor.
DO you experience any of the following?
- loss of urine when you cough, sneeze, or exercise (Hello, all you amazing athletes!!)
- a change in your ability to control your bladder after child birth
- having to plan your day around the nearest bathroom...
Your pelvic floor is made up of a group of muscles – we repeat “A GROUP OF MUSCLES”! Muscles need to be strengthened and released in order for them to work properly.
If you attend Girl Power you will learn some easy ways to strengthen and release your pelvic floor, you will learn more about our anatomy and you will learn how to take control back over your body (just because you wanted to become a mom does not mean you get a free lifetime membership to the Pee Club)!
Come to learn, come to be inspired, come to be empowered! Bring your yoga mat!

Join us for a seminar on creating your goals! Amazing for teens to adults - you don't want to miss this enlightening workshop.

Insight into the presentation:
Have you ever heard someone say, “once I am successful I will be happy”? You may have heard it more than once. The fact is that when people finally get the big house, fancy car or high paying job they have been searching for, happiness doesn’t necessarily follow. Quite often people will not be satisfied and still have a feeling of emptiness inside.
Rather than thinking about the future, what if we lived each day focusing on present time? Instead of applying pressure on yourself to match up with what others have or are doing, imagine the joy of simply living in the moment and being happy with who you are and what you have. Life is a journey filled with ups and downs but we all have the ability to win each and every uphill battle or downhill decent.
The truth is, most of the time, we are our own worst enemy. We often blame others for our own misfortune when that is not reality. Self-sabotaging thoughts or habits are to blame more often than not. Don’t Do That! You can have total control over what we call your “Little Voice” and I will teach you how to do that.
In this presentation you will learn how to:
- Eliminate self-sabotaging behaviors
- Maintain a high mood level
- Accomplish and celebrate wins consistently
- Face your fears
- Build long lasting level 10 confidence
I know there is a hero inside of you. Let me help you believe that about yourself. Together we will first create happiness and this will lead to success in all areas of your life.
