Check Out This Inspiring Lingerie Model's Story About Battling And Beating Breast Cancer

The Lake & Stars featured their own model and breast cancer survivor Fatima Azzahra as their woman of the day yesterday, and we found her story truly inspiring. At the age of 28, while beginning her final semester at Parsons for a degree in Architecture, Azzahra found a lump in her breast. The subsequent story of fibroadenoma, tumors, mastectomy, and eventual lingerie modeling is incredibly motivating, and we urge you check out the full interview on The Lake and Stars' blog.
