Her charity of choice was The Breast Cancer Foundation.
‘I’m feeling extremely vulnerable right now on all levels. So… Ah… Australia, this is me,’ a nervous Camilla said, as she disrobed.
Her teammate Michelle Bridges was quick to show her support.
‘You’re doing great. You are a weapon. You’re a woman who has just conquered so many things,’ she told Camilla.
Camilla was first diagnosed with stage-three breast cancer only months after welcoming her daughter Luna in January 2018.
