This is when Laurelle found Pumla, a fabulous lady who not only just became a Grandmother but who also beat Breast Cancer, and the best part, was up for the challenge. That doesn't mean that on the day she wasn't nervous, cause we could see how she was shaking, while Chris Williams, from Estee Lauder did her makeup. However, she started to relax and shared her very empowering story with us. While Rozi from Image Alchemy, was doing the body painting, Pumla told us how she decided to take control of her life and own the battle. From first not wanting to face the dreaded news of the cancer, to trying an approach with a herbalist, and then facing it head on and seeing a specialist at Helen Joseph Hospital and Milpark. She decided she was going to "fight like a girl" and her determination paid off, as she kicked Cancer's butt.
This beautiful cover would never have happened if it hadn't have been for such an amazing lady, and we have to thank Pumla for taking the leap of faith with us. Your beautiful smile, infectious laugh and incredible sense of humour just shines through in every photo.
