The granddaughter of struggle icons Nelson Mandela and Winnie Mandela says she's had skeletal pain, headaches and shooting pain to the left of my chest everyday for close to 2 weeks.

She says she's contacted her Medical Oncologist and Radiation Oncologist to determine the cause of the pain and according to them "the pain in my chest may just be from Radiation (treatment was performed on my breast, chest and neck), and the joint pain from the hormone blockers (Zoladex and Femara) that I'm currently on. If the pain persists, I'll need to go for a bone scan to determine the cause of my sudden pain."

However things aren't all red for her, as she says "on the plus side, the studying is going really well and this is what I looked like today ... Just smiling, flossing and slaying through the pain because whatever the cause - it needs a reminder of who I am ... Maybe it should go ahead and ask the Breast Cancer I beat TWICE just who the F I am!!! My dress from 2015 still fits like a glove, I'm still under 70kgs!!! What's good?"

We know she'll get through this just fine.
