Kathy Wakile's relationship with her cousin, Teresa Giudice, seemed as strained as ever this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. But even in the midst of all of that drama, the mom stayed focused on her priority in life: her daughter Victoria Wakile's health.
Kathy broke down in tears earlier this season on RHONJ as she revealed that Victoria, who had previously undergone two brain surgeries to remove a benign tumor, had fainted again. Fortunately, it turned out to just be a scare, and Victoria is doing better than ever these days.
Still, Victoria knows how lucky she is to be alive. "I'd like to THANK ALL OF YOU for reaching out these past couple weeks as you watched the episodes of my [sic] lastest scare," she shared on Instagram Monday. "God is so good and I am so blessed to be HAPPY, HEALTHY and CELEBRATING LIFE with my family and friends! My family and I chose to share this journey with you because we've always wanted to spread love, hope and awareness."
Kathy assured fans on Twitter Wednesday that Victoria is "doing great" after her health scare featured on RHONJ this season.
Victoria is doing her part to help raise funds and awareness for her health issue. She'll be participating in this year's New Jersey Walk to End Children's Brain Tumors on Sunday, October 2, and after graduating college last spring, Victoria shared that she plans on continuing her studies to become a nurse.
Clearly, we should expect big things from Victoria in the future. For now, take a walk down memory lane and revisit her adorable childhood, below.
