Her name is Zoleka Mandela, she’s beaten breast cancer and celebrating it. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago and had a double mastectomy, eventually she made it out alive.
Beautiful Zoleka shared her story on IG and it’s inspiring:
“Can you believe that this year marks 4yrs since I was diagnosed with breast cancer? I had both my breasts removed (bilateral mastectomy) with immediate reconstruction.
I had just had my breast tissue expanders replaced with breast implants in this picture and the, “Louis Vuitton,” bag I’m carrying as the nurses call it – is where the drainage happens, the tubes were stitched into my incisions.
Don’t get me started on how painful it was when they had to removed them, I cried bucket loads but that’s okay because no plant grows without water! �� to be honest, I’ve always wanted bigger breasts but not this way! I didn’t even get the size I wanted, it was tough trying to explain my, “Boo b to Bo oty Ratio,” to my plastic surgeon – the breasts must match my BIG bo oty so I resemble the letter, “S,” when I stand at a angle ��
Anyway, I still haven’t gotten my nipples as yet even 4yrs later … I don’t miss them but maybe I should buy fake ones I’ll wear for a week to see if it really makes a difference in my life? ��
I’m cancer free and I’m celebrating that by trying to play a more positive role in the lives of those living with cancer, that matters more to me than nipples and bigger breasts!
– Good thing is she made it alive, all this other talk about BIG size and S shape, I no sabi oh…Smiles!
