My Pet Cheetah Helped Me Through Cancer

A BRAVE cancer survivor has told how she overcame the illness - with the help of her fully-grown pet CHEETAH. Big cat lover Riana Van Nieuwenhuizen was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2013 and underwent a double mastectomy as part of the treatment. The 53-year-old, who bought her first cheetah Fiela back in 2006, also had to have chemotherapy as she walked the road to recovery. Riana’s unique bond with the animal means she can cuddle up with it in bed, and even allow it to lick her face and eat from the same dinner table. The big-hearted survivor now runs the Cheetah Experience in Bloemfontein, South Africa, with her home based on the site.Videographer / Director: Evert KleynhansProducer: Tom Gillespie, Chloe BrowneEditor: Sonia Estal
