Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum fights for her life after breast surgery

Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother has revealed she is once again ‘fighting for her life’ after beating breast cancer more than a decade ago.

Dolores Aveiro, 64, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, and underwent surgery and radio therapy.

The mother-of-four has now revealed she has had an operation on her other breast, as well as a new course of radiotherapy.

‘I was operated on another breast in Madrid, I’ve had radiotherapy and now I’m fighting for my life,’ she told a Portuguese TV station on Thursday.

The shock confession came after she attacked Cristiano’s rape accuser Kathryn Mayorga over her claims she was raped in a Las Vegas hotel.


 ‘I have confidence in my son when it comes to what happened,’ she said.

‘When she went there, it wasn’t to play cards. It was to do something. I know the son I have.’

She did not offer any more details about when the operation had taken place but added: ‘No-one knows about the second one.’

In 2009 former Man U star Ronaldo donated £100,000 to build a cancer centre at the hospital that saved his mum’s life.

He made the generous gift to the Portuguese League Against Cancer in his native Madeira so it could be used to build a centre in the Hospital Central in the island’s capital Funchal.

Mrs Aviero had a lump removed from her right breast at the hospital in summer 2007.

She later followed a successful course of radiotherapy and was understood to be taking anti-cancer drugs to keep the disease at bay when she suffered her new health scare.

Isabel Aguiar, director of the cancer charity, confirmed the donation at the time and said: ‘I believe he made the gift because of his mother Dolores.

‘It is the first donation he has given us. We were expecting it because he told us at the end of last year that he would do it.

‘We are going to build a small centre in the garden of the Hospital Central, to give support to cancer patients.’

A friend of the footballer was quoted as saying: ‘Cristiano will be eternally grateful to the doctors and nurses who saved his mum´s life.

‘He wanted to show them how much he appreciated what they did for him.

‘He knows how devastating cancer can be for both the patient and their families, and wanted to do something to ease some of that suffering.’

There was no immediate reaction from the Juventus striker to his mum’s dramatic new health revelation.

The footballer’s alcoholic dad Dinis drank himself into an early grave in September 2005.

The Juventus forward is currently helping girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, 25, following the death of her 70-year-old dad Jorge Eduardo in his native Argentina.

Miss Rodriguez said earlier this week she would love to become the footballer’s wife in an interview with Spanish magazine Hola! in which she revealed how the footballer was supporting her in her ‘moments of sadness.’

Ronaldo returns for depleted Real in Madrid derby

World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo returns for a Real Madrid side otherwise stricken by injuries and suspensions as they look to beat Atletico Madrid for the first time in six meetings this season on Saturday.

Ronaldo completed his two-game ban for kicking out at Cordoba defender Edimar as the European champions sneaked past Sevilla to open up a four-point lead over Barcelona at the top of the table on Wednesday.

However, victory came at a cost as World Cup star James Rodriguez broke a bone in his right foot that will keep him out for two months, whilst centre-back Sergio Ramos will also be sidelined due to a hamstring problem in the coming weeks.

Left-back Marcelo misses out at the Calderon too after his appeal against his fifth yellow card of the Liga campaign was dismissed on Thursday.

Real boss Carlo Ancelotti is short of defensive options with Pepe also out with a rib injury, but he insisted he has confidence in the inexperienced pairing of Raphael Varane and Nacho in central defence.

“What we lose above all is experience, but sometimes enthusiasm is a good thing,” said Ancelotti.

“The two of them (Varane and Nacho) give me a lot of confidence. Ramos and Pepe are among the best defenders in the world, but I am not worried.”

Atletico have bounced back from their heartbreaking Champions League final defeat at the hands of Real last season to beat them in the Spanish Supercup and Copa del Rey over two legs this season, as well as winning 2-1 at the Bernabeu in La Liga earlier in the campaign.

However, defeat this weekend would see them fall 10 points behind the league leaders and all but end their defence of the title.

“I think it is important because the last games against Atletico weren’t good, so we have to change this bad run,” added Ancelotti.

“It will be a very difficult game, but we want to do something different.

“The motivation is so big for this game being a Madrid derby we don’t need the motivation of leaving Atletico 10 points behind.”

In contrast to the visitors, Diego Simeone has a fully-fit squad to choose from for the first time since November and defender Diego Godin insisted their desire to beat their cross-city rivals hasn’t been diminished by recent success.

“We want to win, we always want to win and even more so against Real Madrid,” said the Uruguayan.

“It is a different game and just because we have won the previous games doesn’t mean we will win this one.

“We need to prepare well, continue with what we have been doing and that will help us get closer to the result we want.”

Barcelona will be eager to capitalise should Real slip up when they travel to face Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

The Catalans have been in scintillating form since their last visit to the Basque country ended in defeat to Real Sociedad at the beginning of January, winning eight games in a row and scoring 29 goals in the process.

However, they have failed to win in any of their previous three trips to Bilbao, including a 1-0 defeat on their first visit to the new San Mames last season.

Elsewhere, Sevilla, Valencia and Villarreal continue their fight for the fourth and final Champions League place.

Villarreal have the easiest task on paper when they host relegation threatened Granada on Saturday.

Sevilla make their second trip to the capital in five days as they travel to Getafe, whilst Valencia are away to Espanyol on Sunday.
