Rita and Laurali hit the stores! "She was game for everything," Rita says. "What I loved about her is she said she wanted to look professional and elegant. And we wanted her to feel that she could still get around her business and not feel like, 'Oh, well, I can't work in this.'"

Now, Laurali can take her look anywhere. "We gave her a white shirt that she can roll up the sleeves. She has her jacket if she is going out to meet the customers," Rita says. "Instead of the tennis shoes, we got her ballet slippers so that she can still be in her flats and work and do her job."

Laurali wasn't even afraid to cut her hair. "These two days have been beautiful for me," she says.

Konyia says her mother looks gorgeous. "Years have been released, lifted," she says. "She looks alive. This is the mom that I grew up knowing that I like to emulate, and she's back."
