FAMILY IS EVERYTHING

Fans and admirers took to the comment section to commend the Johnson women’s beauty. Elisa Johnson also commented on the pix with the words:

“LOVE YOU MAMA.”

The post which was a throwback photo to commemorate the National daughter’s day was also Cookie’s way of revealing to the world that family is everything, which was reflected in the hashtags that accompanied the picture.

ELISA’S BRAVERY IN THE FACE OF DANGER

It is no news that the family has been through some difficult situations, and the daughter of the former Lakers player, Magic Johnson and his wife have experienced their fair share.

Late last year, the 24-year-old narrowly escaped a robbery attack by two armed men.

In a TMZ report, the Beverly Hills resident was hanging out with friends in a rented Airbnb apartment when the men invaded the house and collected their belongings at gunpoint.

The athlete’s daughter was in luck as she was in one of the bedrooms during the attack and was able to escape unseen via a glass door, but not without a tell-tale injury.

The brown-skinned beauty later posted about God’s goodness on Instagram to confirm her lucky escape.

The incident admittedly shook the Johnsons, but they have learned to move past it.

The 60-year-old retired athlete revealed to reporters at the 10th Annual Boxing Night of the “Big Father, Big Cause” charity event that Elisa was doing great.

He also gave his wife credit for his little girl’s recovery from the trauma.

MORE THAN A SURVIVOR

As it turned out, the 24-year-old was battling more than just post-invasion trauma.

She revealed in April via an Instagram post that during her miraculous escape, she sustained some intense stomach scars which left her feeling insecure about her body.

After battling those insecurities for months, she finally learned to embrace the scars as part of her journey.

“I love my body, and I am Proud to be in the place I am today. #selfhealing,” she wrote.

Cookie’s support has made a positive impact on the survivor who has proven herself to be a true Johnson in the face of life’s travails.
