Many times, surviving breast cancer leaves women feeling strong and empowered – as it should! In fact, many women who overcome the fatal disease like to be referred to as “warriors” for the incredibly tough battle that they fought and were victorious over.
However, the treatment often takes a toll on the woman physically which leads her to conflicting feelings about her outward beauty.
The TODAY show doesn’t think any woman should ever feel anything less than fabulously beautiful, especially the inspirational women that defeat cancer, and they decided for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month they were going to show these special ladies how fabulous and beautiful they really are!
TODAY‘s ambush makeover team of “stylist to the stars” Louis Licari and fashion stylist Jill Martin selected two breast cancer survivors from the Rockefeller Center crowd and brought them indoors to work their magic.
They chose Susan Bagwell from Raleigh, NC and Linda Valentine from Muscle Shoals, AL as the two women who would receive very exclusive surprise makeovers.
Susan was in NY with her daughter-in-law and mom while Linda was visiting the Big Apple with her son.
