London, Aug 1 : Naomi Campbell's mother defended her angry daughter's Heathrow stint and said that the supermodel proved to be saviour in her battle with breast cancer.
Valerie Campbell, 55, said that when she was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago, it was her daughter who left no stone unturned to get her the best treatment possible.
"Naomi went from one doctor to another in America, pulled all her contacts and did not take no for an answer. My daughter saved my life," The Mirror quoted Valerie, as saying. She also defended her 38-year-old catwalk queen's recent air rage attack at Heathrow airport.
She said: "I try to abide by rules and regulations. If you break the law then you must pay the penalty. And I think Naomi understands that very well herself."
Naomi got 200 hours' community service for assaulting a police officer and threatening airline crew when her baggage was lost at Heathrow.
