Dayanara may skin cancer
Malungkot na binalita ni Miss Universe 1993 Dayanara Torres na may sakit siyang skin cancer.
Sa video post ng 41-year-old Puerto Rican beauty queen ngayon February via Instagram, kinuwento ni Yari kung paano niya nadiskubre ang skin cancer sa kanyang katawan.
Nagsimula raw ito sa isang nunal na lumalaki na hindi niya pinansin noon.
Heto ang kanyang post:
“Today I have some sad news… I have been diagnosed with skin cancer ‘melanoma’ from a big spot/mole I never paid attention to, even though it was new, it had been gro-wing for years & had an uneven surface.
“My fiancé Louis had been begging me to have it checked & finally made an appointment himself… after a biopsy & a second surgery last Tuesday the results unfortunately are positive. Now we are waiting to see which treatment I will be receiving but they have already removed a big area from the back of my knee & also they have removed 2 lymph nodes at the top of my leg where it had already spread. Hoping it has not spread to any more areas or organs.
“I have put everything in God’s hands & I know he has all control… My sons although a bit scared know about my faith and know they have a warrior of a mommy!
“But if I can help anyone along the way based on my experience, it would be to tell you… PLEASE, never forget to take care of yourself. If you see something or feel something different in your body have it checked… I had no idea skin cancer could spread anywhere else in your body.”
