The model bravely fought the disease. She and her family moved to Argentina so that she could receive the indicated treatment. There, she wrote a letter to her loved ones, in which she assured that she would become someone important and represent her country with pride.

“I know a lot of people must be curious about what it is, but it’s something we keep to ourselves. We feel very blessed and the only thing I can say is that what we ask God every day is that he be born with great health. Whether she is a girl or a boy, it does not matter anymore, what God sends us, we are happy, ”said Nadia Ferreira.
