Gisele Bundchen surprises cancer patients

Gisele Bundchen helped give a group of young female cancer patients a supermodel-style makeover at the weekend (05-06Nov11) as part of a charity initiative.

The Brazilian beauty was on hand to give the girls lessons in catwalk moves at a beauty salon in Boston, Massachusetts as the group was treated to hair cuts, manicures and make-up applications.


The event was organised by workers at the Jimmy Fund Clinic at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as part of a weekend of fun for patients, which also included a shopping spree, a night in a hotel and dinner at a restaurant.


Local sports reporter John Dennis helped organise Bundchen's appearance and he reveals the emotional day left the supermodel in floods of tears.


He tells the Boston Herald, "It was the most amazing, wonderful, wonderful thing I've ever seen. It was unbelievable. She made every one of those girls feel beautiful, loved and important. It was very, very special."
