Bronwin Jantjies, alongside Wendy, Smile Foundation’s Western Cape Coordinator, embarked on a three-year journey filled with challenges. Bronwin faced hardships due to abnormally large breasts, which led to a loss of enthusiasm for school and self-esteem issues, stemming from ridicule and teasing. She also endured physical discomfort, sleep difficulties, and the pain of shopping. The COVID-19 pandemic further complicated her path from 2020 to 2022. However, she persevered with Wendy’s unwavering support.
When restrictions eased, Bronwin’s determination paid off, and her breast reduction surgery in November 2022 was a game-changer. She gained her confidence back, standing up to her peers, and radiated joy at her Matric Dance. She expressed heartfelt gratitude, saying, “Dit is ‘n verligting en sy is so dankbaar. I am smiling all the way at My Matric Dance, THANK YOU TO SMILE FOUNDATION, PROF, AND THE MEDICAL TEAM.”
