Rita Ora’s mum Vera has stunned fans with a powerful message she has shared.
The 55-year-old took to her Instagram account to share a stunning snap of her posing by a swimming pool.
The singer’s lookalike mother shared the snap with her 60,000 followers, which shows her donning a bright red strapless swimsuit courtesy of swimwear line Melissa Obadash.
The NHS psychiatrist, who has recently overcame a battle with breast cancer, uploaded the post so that she could share a powerful message with her loyal followers.
‘This post is dedicated to @melissaodabash @futuredreamscharity @amoena_company for their gratitude in helping and supporting many women like me touched by breast cancer!’ wrote the singer-songwriter’s mum.
‘I modelled for the charity as their ambassador not because I am a professional model but to increase awareness and help all women affected get their confidence back,’ she continued.
‘🌞 is out, will expose scars, marks and uneven body shapes but with the right swimwear we can enjoy the sun as everyone else 😘’.
Future dreams charity, an organisation that supports those who have been affected by breast cancer and who the NHS professional has collaborated with, left a sweet comment honouring the swimwear ambassador.
They wrote: ‘So proud of you Vera – always sharing your story and raising breast awareness- you look stunning in this exclusive swimwear 🙌🏻💕🎀🙏🏻’.
Vera was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2005 when she was 39-year-old and consequently underwent a mastectomy.
At the time, the mother-of-three said to Daily Mail: ‘The whole family is still left with the anxieties that cancer ingrains. Rita gets anxious and sometimes has panic attacks.
‘(At the time) Rita rebelled a little, bunking off school for a couple of weeks. It was her mental escape.’
As well as being mum to the Coming Home hitmaker, Vera is also mum to the singer’s sister Elena and her 21-year-old brother Don, who recently graduated from university.
