Dayanara Torres, the ex-wife of Marc Anthony revealed via Instagram that she has been diagnosed with cancer on 4th February 2019, which also happened to be World Cancer Day.
In the video clip, Torres explained her cancer diagnosis in Spanish. She captioned,
“As mothers, we are always taking care of everyone around us ... our kids, family, friends & often we forget to take care of ourselves.
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 growing 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 and they have also 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. Have I have put everything in God's hands & I know that you have all control ... “
This is the dark time for the Puerto Rico native, who at the age of 18 had held the title of Miss Universe in the year 1993, the youngest one to ever to hold the title.
Dayanara Torres continued in the video, holding back her tears,
“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.
