Cancer can rob its victims of much of the happiness and health that life has to offer. But there are times when the dreaded disease is responsible for bringing out the best in people.
The side effects of cancer treatments can sometimes confiscate a person’s hair, skin tone, and happy-go-lucky demeanor. For loved ones observing the fight, it’s difficult to know what to do to help the person.
Makeup artist and YouTube blogger, Nadina Ioana, had to watch someone very close to her wage a battle with cancer. The one stricken was her mother.
Chemotherapy had robbed Ioana’s mom of her hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, and naturally, it affected her mother’s willingness to smile. But there was something Ioana could do to help.
Her expertise in makeovers had found the perfect subject. The work done here is an example of one terrific transformation.
What a loving gift a daughter has given to her mom. The tutorial has already gone viral and is probably helping people in similar situations all over the world.
It is a wonderful idea and the fact it involves a mom and daughter makes it very special. Not only is the physical transformation amazing but the emotional and psychological benefits are evident via the very nice smile.
It’s doubtful that Ioana anticipated the huge outpouring of support and positive comments her video would garner. Praise came pouring in from all over the globe.
The main theme of the support acknowledged mom was beautiful to begin with, and the makeover made her even more beautiful. “What a sweet daughter to do that for her mom, I wish I had someone like that when I went through my treatments,” said one commenter.
“It’s really nice that she has someone who cares,” said another. That is probably as important as the actual makeover.
It’s so important to the person undertaking the treatment to know they have someone on their side. Ioana helped her mom, who she refers to as “her warrior,” feel better about herself, inside and out.
