Spanish Footballer and Real Madrid star, Iker Casillas‘ wife, Sara Carbonero, disclosed that she is currently battling with ovarian cancer on Tuesday, May 21st, 2019.
The couple seem to be going through trying times as the devastating news comes a few days after her husband had a heart attack during his training with his club, Porto. He was immediately taken to the hospital where he was stabilized and has since been allowed to go home.
The sports journalist shared the heartbreaking news via her Instagram page with the caption:
“When we hadn’t yet recovered from one shock, life has surprised us again. This time it’s me, that six-letter word I still struggle to write. A few days ago during a check-up, doctors described a malignant ovarian tumour and I have been operated on. Everything has turned out okay and fortunately we caught it in time but I’ve still got some months left fighting while I have the corresponding treatment. I’m calm and confident everything is going to be okay. I know the road will be tough but will also have a happy ending. I have the support of my family and friend and a great medical team. I take advantage of this moment to ask that my journalist colleagues show the respect and understanding they have always shown me, especially in these difficult and delicate times for me and my family.
