Miss Universe 1993 winner Dayanara Torres made a sad revelation through her social media accounts regarding her current condition.
KAMI learned that the Puerto Rican beauty queen, who is close to the hearts of many Filipinos, is currently suffering from “Melanoma” or skin cancer.
Dayanara expressed in a video and post that she did not expect having such severe condition through her mole that continued growing.
She also revealed that she and her fiancé are just waiting for possible treatments and the doctors already removed some areas of her skin where the cancer spread.
“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 and had an uneven surface.
“My fiancé Louis had been begging me to have it checked and finally made an appointment himself... after a biopsy and 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 and 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 quipped.
Despite the alarming condition, the beauty queen still remains positive that she will surpass this challenge because she has strong faith in God.
She also disclosed that her sons new about her skin cancer already and they are quite nervous should it become worse.
“I have put everything in God's hands and 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!” she concluded.
