Juventus football star, Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum, Dolores Aveiro has revealed she is “fighting for her life” after a breast cancer diagnosis.
Aveiro who had removed a lump in 2007 says she is now undergoing radiotherapy to beat cancer.
Speaking on a Portuguese television station, Aveiro said, “I was operated on another breast in Madrid, I’ve had radiotherapy and now I’m fighting for my life”.
In 2009, Ronaldo donated £100,000 to build a cancer centre at the hospital that saved his mum’s life.
Aveiro also recently backed her son in the rape claims leveled against him saying, “I have confidence in my son when it comes to what happened. When she went there, it wasn’t to play cards. It was to do something.”
