Martina Navratilova Opens Up About Facing Double Cancer Diagnosis in Podcast Interview

Cured of double cancer last June, Martina Navratilova, podcast guest « On with Kara Swisher », returned to this inevitably confusing period. The women’s tennis legend notably explained her reaction after learning of the diagnosis.

“The second time I was diagnosed, I was like, ‘Fuck, I could die in a year or less.’ The doctor who diagnosed me told me the disease could be in my lungs, kidneys, or liver, which meant it could also be in my brain. Before I knew exactly where she was, I was terrified that it was a death sentence (…) As soon as I heard the news from the doctors, I panicked for three days thinking that I might not be there next Christmas. The list of things I wanted to do came to mind. This may sound very superficial, but I thought about the car I wanted to drive for my last year of life. »
