Lady Gaga was having a hard day yesterday, as Saturday, October 7 would have been her best friend, Sonja Durham Dubois’ birthday.

In May, Sonja, the longtime managing director of Haus of Gaga, passed away from stage 4 breast, brain and lung cancer. After she passed, Gaga posted a long tribute to her friend on Instagram, in which she vowed “to be stronger for anyone who’s lost somebody to cancer.”
But her strength was tested on Sonja’s birthday, which she marked with a number of posts on the social media site, where she also called attention to the importance of breast cancer awareness month.

“Share your stories of survival and treatment plans with each other,” she wrote on the first post. “Everyone’s cancer is different. But the More we talk and share the more we learn. I have no words for you girl, just tears and dreams. & I know you’re running Haus of Gaga from Heaven.”

She later posted that she had been on the couch during the day and feeling very sad about Sonja. Fortunately her boyfriend, Christian Carino (who she called “a very special someone”), was there to pick her up, along with her “Grigio Girls,” a reference to a song off her Joanne deluxe edition album, in which she had paid homage to Sonja.

“I managed to dress up and feel better in a beautiful pink sequined dress generously gifted to me from @oscardelarenta,” Gaga captioned the photo of Christian snuggled up to her. “Sonja would want us to celebrate her Birthday. So we are. Dressed in Pink and handing out pink chocolate kisses for #breastcancerawareness.”
What a great guy to pick her up when she's feeling down and help honor her friend in such a beautiful way!
