We have to dedicate this next post to the mighty Joanne Borgella, a warrior whose journey we’ve been following for quite some time. Joanne, of Haitian descent, is a plus size model with Wilhelmina Models. People first took notice of her during American Idol, yes she is also a singer and producer.
She was diagnosed with breast cancer last year shortly after launching her own clothing line JBNY. Our editor met her at a fashion event during NYFW and exchanged info as she wanted to set up an interview. It could have been 1 or 2 weeks after when Joanne posted about her condition on social media. Joanne had faith from the get go as she knows she is going to pull through. Her journey is full of trials and tribulations but Caribbean Lace will be there every step of the way to show our support! You will beat this Joanne!
