Martina Navratilova overcomes breast and throat cancer

Martina Navratilova reveals she has BEATEN breast and throat cancer: Tennis legend says she feared she ‘wouldn’t see next Christmas’

Martina Navratilova says she is now ‘cancer free’ after overcoming breast and throat cancer. 

The tennis legend revealed the good news in an emotional interview with Piers Morgan, adding she had feared she ‘wouldn’t see next Christmas’.

The 66-year-old said the diagnosis had forced her to put on hold plans to adopt a child with her wife Julia Lemigova and she was moved to tears by the kindness of staff during her treatment.

In an interview on Morgan’s TalkTV show, which will air tomorrow, Navratilova said the double diagnosis had terrified her and left her working on her bucket list of things she wanted to do before she dies.

However, she fought through and now says that she only has another two weeks of radiotherapy on her breast before she is officially in the clear.

The tennis ace, who won 59 major titles in a career spanning four decades, announced she had been diagnosed with cancer at the start of the year, sparking an avalanche of support.

She had previously beaten breast cancer in 2010, but said she feared she might not see Christmas 2023 after it returned.

After being diagnosed at the beginning of last December, she said: ‘[I’m thinking] I will see this Christmas but maybe not the next one.’

Fortunately, doctors informed Navratilova her cancer was ‘extremely treatable’, the Sun reports.

She said the treatment was tough, and she was moved to tears after nurses played Elton John’s I’m Still Standing while she was in the hospital.
