Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen made a teenage girl’s Christmas wish come true by paying her a special visit as she battles cancer. This is the second time that Gisele paid a visit to Karina Xavier…the first time was at a Dana Farber event two years ago. This time the former Victoria’s Secret Angel met Karina at her home.
Two years ago, fifteen-year-old Xavier had undergone chemotherapy treatments for bone cancer and then went into remission. However now she is back undergoing another round of chemo.
Gisele took some time to visit Karina at her home in Malden, Massachusetts the day after Christmas Karina said, “She’s my role model, and I love her and she was really nice meeting me at my house, it was very special.”
Karina runs a blog, Chic by Karina, featuring many how-to videos and so she talked beauty, fashion and more with her supermodel idol. She said, “I post a lot of inspiration stuff, Christmas video, and DIY videos and everything that girls like to watch.”
Of Gisele, Karina said, “She says that you have to be really positive, and I actually agree with her, and I think that’s very important.”
Gisele later posted a photo of the two to her Instagram and Twitter accounts, with the following message, “It was a pleasure to see you again @chicbykarina. You are a warrior, an inspiration of positivity and courage. I will be praying for you. Sending you love and light always.”
And Karina did the same with the following caption, “From the moment you surprised me, until the moment you left, I was so shocked for you being here with me! Thank you so much for taking time off of your day to come visit me and spend some time with me! Also thank you for your kind words and your very meaningful gifts! You are a great person and you will continue inspiring me… I love you @giseleofficial.”
Our thoughts are with Karina as she takes on cancer again. You did it once, you can do it again girl!
