On her Instagram account during World Cancer Day, February 4, Miss Universe 1993 Dayanara Torres uploaded a video that said she has been diagnosed with melanoma, which is a form of skin cancer. Although the video was in Spanish, she explained her condition in English on the caption.
According to her, she has a big mole that has been growing for years, which she ignored until her fiancé Louis D’Esposito, co-president of Marvel Studios, prompted her to have it checked.View this post on Instagram
Soy #Guerrera As mothers we are always taking care of everyone around us… our kids, family, friends & often we forget to take care of ourselves. 💫 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. 💫 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.
