Martina Navratilova confirmed in an interview with the media that she is now cancer free. There was a lot of happiness in the hearts of her fans, friends, and relatives when they received this news. In the wake of her diagnosis, Navratilova felt a tremendous amount of fear and apprehension.
As one of the most difficult times in her life, she realized that despite what she was going through, she must not give up and that she must fight against this evil disease as long as she can. ‘As far as they know I’m cancer free.
’- Navratilova said, as quoted by metro.co.uk When Navratilova found out about the diagnosis, she thought she wouldn't see the next Christmas. ‘I was in a total panic for three days thinking I may not see next Christmas,’ she said.
‘The bucket list came into my mind of all the things I wanted to do.’ When Martina noticed that she had an enlarged lymph node on her neck, she knew she had to see a doctor right away. ‘This was the first week in December, (I’m thinking) I will see this Christmas but maybe not the next one.’
Martina Navratilova and her reaction
The moment that changed her was when she saw children of a few months fighting cancer.
The parents' reactions and fighting awakened something completely different in her, and Martina realized that she had to fight. ‘When you see kids, that’s when you really stop feeling sorry for yourself because of what the parents are going through.
There were kids that were six to eight months old, newborns practically. And they have to send them to sleep to do the treatment, so they don’t move. That’s when you don’t feel sorry for yourself anymore. You just have to suck it up and deal with it.’
