RHOM’s Martina Navratilova Diagnosed With Stage One Throat and Breast Cancer – The Real Housewives
Sad news out of the Bravoverse.
The wife of Real Housewives of Miami star Julia Lemigova has been diagnosed with two forms of stage one cancer.
Tennis legend Martina Navratilova has been diagnosed with stage one throat and breast cancer after having a swollen lymph node in her neck, which turned out to be cancerous. At the time, a mass was also found in her breast.
Martina’s spokesperson told PEOPLE, “The cancer type is HPV, and this particular type responds really well to treatment,” adding that both cancers are in their “early stages.”
“This double whammy is serious but still fixable, and I’m hoping for a favorable outcome. It’s going to stink for a while, but I’ll fight with all I have got.” Martina explained in a statement to The Sunday Times, noting that she will begin treatment next week.
This is the second time Martina has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Thirteen years ago, Martina was first diagnosed with breast cancer. She was ultimately declared cancer free in 2010.
In a statement on Instagram, Julia vowed to stay positive amid Martina’s duel cancer diagnosis.
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out to share words of support,” Julia wrote on Instagram Monday alongside a photo of her and Martina.
“Together, we will fight this ??,” she added.
Season 5 of the Real Housewives of Miami is currently airing on Peacock, with new episodes dropping every Thursday.
