Should we even mention that she was sexually abused as a child and was strong enough to let her scars heal? The mother of six also lost two of her own children, her mother and grandmother.

On her Instagram, Nelson Mandela’s daughter revealed that she sought medical help after experiencing pain in her left rib and was told she might have bone cancer and was afraid of waiting for a diagnosis.
“I’ve had back pain for over a month now and recently saw a GP when I couldn’t take the excruciating pain in my left rib any longer. A few days ago I went for an x-ray of my chest and ribs – I have a pathological fracture and swelling caused by cancer,” Mandela wrote on the social media image sharing site.”
She went on to say that her doctor told her that the cancer cannot be removed or cured and she is currently awaiting CAT results. “I don’t even have words to express my thoughts and feelings, words to describe how scared I am right now. What will I tell my children? How do I tell them that this time I might not live my life as a survivor? How do I tell them everything is going to be okay when it isn’t? I’m dying… I don’t want to die.”
It only took her a few minutes to be on top with Mzansi praying for her healing, check out the reactions below:

My heart is so broken for Zoleka Mandela. It must be devastating for her. Surviving cancer 2 times and then having it come back 3 times? This time you have a newborn baby💔
