Iker Casillas’ Wife, Sara Carbonero Battles With Ovarian Cancer

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.

Cuando aún no nos habíamos recuperado de un susto, la vida nos ha vuelto a sorprender. Esta vez me ha tocado a mí, esa dichosa palabra de 6 letras que todavía me cuesta escribir. Hace unos días en una revisión, los médicos me vieron un tumor maligno de ovario y ya he sido operada. Todo ha salido muy bien, afortunadamente lo hemos pillado muy a tiempo pero todavía me quedan unos meses de lucha mientras sigo el tratamiento correspondiente. Estoy tranquila y con la confianza de que todo va a salir bien. Sé que el camino será duro pero también que tendrá un final feliz. Cuento con el apoyo de mi familia y amigos y con un gran equipo médico. Aprovecho para pedir desde aquí a mis compañeros periodistas el respeto y la comprensión con los que siempre me habéis tratado, especialmente en estos momentos tan difíciles y delicados para mí y mi familia.
