It was all about Beyonce in Ireland on Saturday and model Rozanna Purcell was among the 80,000-plus crowd who turned out to see Queen Bey.
Roz, 25, and her older sister Rachel, 28, partied the night away at Beyonce’s Croke Park gig on her Formation world tour with the model and food blogger calling it “the best concert I’ve ever been to”.
Beyonce put on an incredible performance, despite only jetting in from London, where she watched Serena Williams play at Wimbledon, just before the show.
Meanwhile, earlier in the day the sisters’ joint interview was published in the Irish Independent’s Weekend magazine where Roz said she wishes her sister’s Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia (CML) had happened to her instead.
“Rach is like my little sister in a weird way and I would have preferred this to happen to me,” Roz said. “She’s strong but I’m really strong.”
However, despite the initial shock, they are extremely positive about Rachel’s prognosis as CML is “completely controllable”.
Rachel explained: “The one thing that stood out to me was that CML is not curable but my doctors have always said to me, ‘If you’re going to get cancer, this is the best one to get as it’s completely controllable.’”
CML affects the body’s ability to produce myeloid cells which affects the bone marrows production of white blood cells.
