Nelson Mandela’s Granddaughter Zoleka Shaves Her Hair After New Cancer Scare

share on:

Zoleka Mandela is facing a new cancer scare while battling breast cancer and has decided to shave her hair in a bid to fearlessly face chemotherapy. 

As with chemo treatments, Zoleka’s hair has been falling off so she decided to shave it all off.

The brave woman who has eight more sessions to go has been sharing her journey with friends and fans in a bid to encourage other cancer-sufferers.

She wrote, “Sunday, 21st August 2016 marks the day I finally shaved off the little hair my chemotherapy left on my head! The eyebrows are on their way too as you can see but it all grows back.”

“I’m not bothered! I don’t mind that my chin hairs are no longer growing either, I was never into the Catfish look anyway!!!”

“I feel completely liberated at this point and much stronger too! Time to knock the next 8 sessions out the ball park.” Zoleka Mandela declared.

Zoleka received her first breast cancer diagnosis five years ago, and had been in remission.

Earlier in May, a new cancerous lump was found and she had to undergo surgery and breast reconstruction.

The strong South African intends to beat the illness.
