CEL­E­BRAT­ING STRONG COURA­GEOUS WOMEN

BREAST CAN­CER SUR­VIVOR, IN­NO­CEN­TIA MAHLANGU, KNOWS THAT FIND­ING OUT THAT YOU HAVE BREAST CAN­CER IN YOUR EARLY 20’S IS OVER­WHELM­ING.

True Love - - Beauty -

Liv­ing in a town­ship com­mu­nity, a young woman with can­cer is not spo­ken about. When In­no­cen­tia was di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer, she felt lost and alone. She was shocked by the di­ag­no­sis be­cause she is so young. With her five year old daugh­ter in mind, she chose to face her sit­u­a­tion and be strong. The im­mense and in­valu­able sup­port she re­ceived from her sis­ter helped tremen­dously dur­ing her re­cov­ery.

In­no­cen­tia is con­vinced that more can­cer aware­ness is needed in town­ship com­mu­ni­ties, be­cause education helps to de-mys­tify the myths sur­round­ing the dis­ease.

In­no­cen­tia is a shin­ing ex­am­ple of a young woman de­ter­mined to live her life to the fullest, de­spite be­ing di­ag­nosed with can­cer. That is why she has been recog­nised as one of Twin­saver’s in­spi­ra­tional sur­vivors for the #Cel­e­brateWomen cam­paign which ac­knowl­edges and cel­e­brates strong, coura­geous women.

These in­spir­ing women have been fea­tured on the new Twin­saver spe­cial edi­tion Twin Ply Flo­ral Fresh pack
