"I Touch Myself is so appropriate now, more than ever.
You know, it really should be the breast cancer song."
Chrissy Amphlett

As a tribute, Chrissy's family and friends, her husband Charley Drayton, fellow songwriters, Cancer Council NSW and supporters from around the globe have come together to make sure Chrissy's legacy lives on to remind women to be in touch with their bodies, and if something's not right, see their doctor.

EXHIBITION

Chrissy Amphlett's #ITouchMyself exhibition for breast cancer awareness
Cancer Council NSW presents the Chrissy Amphlett #itouchmyself exhibition

Almost one year ago, eminent Australian rock legend Chrissy Amphlett, of the infamous band The Divinyls, passed away at the age of 53 following her battle with breast cancer. Chrissy was passionate about spreading awareness around the importance of early detection of breast cancer and wanted her legacy to help save the lives of women.

Chrissy envisioned her iconic song, I Touch Myself, would one day become an anthem for women's health around the world, reminding women to get to know their breasts, know what is normal for them and to participate in breast screening if they're in the right age range. In this fitting tribute, Chrissy's family, friends and Cancer Council NSW have united to transform her dream into reality.

Curated by Blender Gallery in Paddington, Chrissy's husband, Charley Drayton and Cancer Council NSW the #itouchmyself exhibition will give a personal insight into Chrissy's life through emotive, personal images many of which are previously unpublished. The exhibition features works from legendary rock 'n' roll photographers - including Ian Greene (Aus), Tony Mott (Aus), Sandrine Lee (US), Jasmine Hirst (US) and Tony Notarberardino (US) - each with a personal link to Chrissy. Prints from the exhibition will be available for purchase, with a percentage of the funds to be donated to Cancer Council NSW.
