AFTER the huge success of her Rebellious Hope t-shirt, Deborah James will unveil a whole new fashion collection tonight.
The Sun writer has so far raised more than £400,000 from the sale of the top alone and is now both “nervous and excited” to see her full range go live.
In partnership with In the Style, Dame Debs’ pieces will be appearing on the app tonight at 7pm.
Taking to Instagram, she said: “I’m nervous about all the hard work we’ve put into it and I really hope you guys enjoy it.
“We’ve decided to bring forward a little pre-order launch just so I can be here to see it, which makes me emotional.
“But watch my stories today for ALL the details! And remember we donate all profits to the @bowelbabefund so I’m really proud of what we do.

“I just wish I could wear it all.”
The stunning collection, complete with summer dresses and skirts and even a gorgeous two-piece suit, will only be available for 48 hours.
The pieces include the dress the 40-year-old wore to the Chelsea Flower Show this week, as well as the gorgeous white dress she wore to accept her motherhood from Prince William.
Other items of clothing include a floral skirt and dress and of course the infamous Rebellious Hope t-shirt.
In a clip posted to In the Style’s Instagram page, Deborah said she was shocked when founder Adam Frisby approached her about the prospect of launching a collection.
Adam told Debs that he loved how she uses clothes to make her feel better and help her get through the day.
The podcaster said the main reason she wanted to design the collection was because it was something completely different than cancer for her.
She said: “I love fashion, anyone who has followed me for years knows that I love my dresses and am always looking for the best prints.
“I love clothes, that makes me happy.”
Little did she realize when Deborah started creating the collection that she would be leading a “hybrid life,” dividing her time between her home and the hospital.
But as she always wanted to do more, the mother-of-two told the In the Style team she could still work from the hospital.
The brand made it possible and Deborah added that it was a process she enjoyed.
“It kind of brought me to life and gave me something else to think about,” she said.
For the past few weeks, Deborah has been living at her parents’ home in Surrey after being transferred to a hospice at home.
The Signs of Colon Cancer You Need to Know – Think COLON
- B: bleeding
There are several possible causes of bleeding from your butt or blood in your poop.
Bright red blood can come from swollen blood vessels, hemorrhoids, or hemorrhoids in your anus.
Dark red or black blood may come from your intestines or stomach.
Blood in the stool is one of the main signs of colon cancer, so it’s important to tell your doctor so he can investigate.
2. O: Obvious change in toilet habits
It’s important to let your GP know if you notice changes in your bowel habits that last three weeks or more.
It’s especially important if you’ve also noticed signs of blood in your poop.
You may find that you need to go to the bathroom more often, you may have looser stools, or you may feel like you are not walking enough or not completely emptying your bowels.
Don’t be embarrassed, your family doctor will have heard a lot worse! Speak up and have it checked.
3. W: weight loss
This is less common than the other symptoms, but it’s important to be aware of. If you have lost weight and do not know exactly why, you should tell your family doctor.
You may not feel like eating, feel sick, bloated and not hungry.
4. E: Extreme fatigue
Colon cancer that causes bleeding can cause iron deficiency in the body – anemia. If you develop anemia, you are likely to feel tired and your skin may look pale.
5. L: Lump or pain
As with many other types of cancer, lumps or pain can be a sign of colon cancer.
It is very likely that you will feel a pain or lump in your stomach or back passage.
See your GP if it doesn’t go away or if it’s affecting your diet or sleep
She previously told the Sun that hospice staff could not tell her how long she would live.
Deborah added that it was never her intention to die before the collection was released, which she says has “really disappointed” her.
“I really hope you love it as much as I loved designing it.
“I hope it brings you joy, I hope you feel great when you put it on.
“And know that I’ve been there every step of the way and thought about every single one of those pieces.
“Basically, I’ll wear a different dress every day from now until I die.”
While Deborah said this might sound “a little weird and morbid,” she said it’s something she “enjoys so much.”
Deborah was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer just days before Christmas 2016.
Known to fans as BowelBabe, she has shared every step of her journey with Sun readers and her legion of loyal Instagram followers.
Even as she stares death in the face, her determination to raise awareness of her rare cancer has not wavered.
