She is an Australian model, known for her nickname “The Body”, well she has decided to talk about her frightening experience with Cancer when the fifty-one-year-old had found a lump in her breast. The beauty expresses when on her forty-ninth birthday is when she was scared and she said that was ”big warning” telling her she had to put more attention to her health.
Elle revealed to the Mail on Sunday newspaper:
”I thought I had cancer.
”I was away shooting ‘Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model’, so I couldn’t see my doctor and I was really panicking.
”It was four weeks before I got the biopsy results, so it was a long, drawn-out and stressful period of not knowing.
”I was lucky – it was a fibroadenoma [a benign growth], but it was a really big warning. I did some soul searching and realised that maybe I was taking the wrong vitamins and minerals, not eating properly and was too stressed.”
Now that her scare has come and gone she and her husband Jeffrey Soffer, two whom she has been wed for two years too, and co-parents her sons Flynn and Aurelius as well as his children from a previous relationship is living life to the fullest.
The model said:
”We are both hands-on parents although we parent very differently at times. We are deeply committed to our own and each other’s children and their education. We have a great understanding – the children come first, and this brings us closer together. Step-parenting is wonderful, it’s a true honour and requires a very open heart.”
