Dayanara, may skin cancer!

MALUNGKOT na balita ang bumungad sa mga Pinoy na nagmamahal sa dating beauty queen-actress na si Dayanara Torres nang ianunsiyo niya sa kanyang Facebook account kahapon na meron siyang melanoma (skin cancer).

Spanish ang ginawang video post ni Yari (pet name ni Dayanara, 44) na nilagyan niya ng panimulang hashtag na “Soy #Guerrera” (ibig sabihin, warrior).

Isinalin niya sa Ingles ang caption at doon ay sinabi na nagmula ang sakit niya sa akala niya’y simpleng nunal lamang.

Kaya raw siya nagdesisyong ilantad ang sakit ay para matulungang maging aware ang sinumang may kaparehong pinagdaraanan.

Mahabang salaysay ni Yari: “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 & also they have 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.

“I have put everything in God's hands & I know he has all control... My sons although a bit scared know about my faith and know they have a warrior of a mommy!

“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.

Matatandaan na matagal-tagal ding nanirahan sa ’Pinas ang dating Puerto Rican Miss Universe (1993) at lumabas din sa ilang TV shows at pelikula kapareha ang naging boyfriend na si Aga Muhlach.
