Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother is once again fighting for her life after defeating breast cancer over a decade ago, she has revealed.
Dolores Aveiro, 64, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, and underwent surgery and radio therapy.
The mother-of-four has now revealed she has had an operation on her other breast, as well as a new course of radio therapy.
“I was operated on another breast in Madrid, I’ve had radiotherapy and now I’m fighting for my life,” she told a Portuguese TV station on Thursday.
The shocking confession came after she slammed Cristiano’s rape accuser Kathryn Mayorga over her claims she was raped in a Las Vegas hotel.
She did not offer any more details about when the operation had taken place but added: “No one knows about the second one.”
In 2009, Ronaldo donated £100,000 to build a cancer centre at the hospital that saved his mum’s life.
He made the generous gift to the Portuguese League Against Cancer in his native Madeira so it could be used to build a centre in the Hospital Central.
