Addressing her devastating loss, the model continued: 'I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone, make them and myself proud and that takes a lot of bravery, so for that I'm proud of myself because there's a lot that wouldn't have done it. But it's done now. I can laugh too but I'm still here and it's all Gucccci!
