Cody is a cancer survivor who invented C-Lash a false eyelash for cancer patients while going through treatment.

Her story of growing up poor and bottom of her class in Zimbabwe to going for a university interview hours after receiving her cancer diagnosis. Going from an academic write off to getting a Masters while holding down a day job, setting up a company and being a mother to 2 boys.

To successfully launching her invention in Boots and having her lashes now available in 6 countries is quite remarkable.
