Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum fighting for life after breast cancer diagnosis

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum Dolores Aveiro has revealed she is “fighting for her life” after a new cancer diagnose.

Dolores Aveiro, 64, had a lump removed in 2007 but she has now admitted she is undergoing radiotherapy to beat the disease.

She told a Portuguese TV station in an interview: “I was operated on another breast in Madrid, I’ve had radiotherapy and now I’m fighting for my life.”

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 former Manchester United star Ronaldo donated £100,000 to build a cancer centre at the hospital that saved his mum’s life.
