    I was diagnosed with a brain tumour and will be going for my brain operation as soon as my surrogate mother is pregnant because the therapy cause that I can’t carry children.
    I stopped working, closed my boutique, I’m isolated to keep me save from COVID-19, so my hairstylist came to my house to cut my hair short and put pienk stripes in my hair. I never thought I would do this! In about 8 weeks I will shave my hair for my operation. Never fear cancer.
