Few days ago , Dayanara took to her social media to reveal that she had recently been diagnosed with skin cancer. She captioned, “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.
The Former Miss Universe continued, “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.”
Dayanara Torres talked about how she had put in all her faith in God as she wrote, “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.”
Dayanara visited Manila in 2017 where she was in the panel of the jury for Miss Universe 2017, which was held in the Philippines. She went on to become a celebrity in the country, starring in movies with Aga Muhlach and Cesar Montano, among others. Angelopedia wishes her a full and quick recovery.
