Namorada da atacante brasileira Marta, a zagueira Toni Deion fez uma cirurgia de câncer de mama no início de agosto. Na ocasião, a americana foi submetida a uma dupla mastectomia e reconstrução mamária. Duas semanas depois, a americana voltou aos treinos no Orlando Pride, ond também atua a amada. Pois, na terça-feira, a zagueira usou as redes sociais para apoiar a campanha Outubro Rosa, que alerta sobre a importância da prevenção ao câncer de mama. E também exibiu fotos de seu pós-cirúrgico.
“Ao entrarmos em outubro, mês da conscientização do câncer de mama, incentivo todos a serem proativos em sua saúde. Implore os outros ao seu redor para fazer o mesmo. Esta doença não discrimina. Não importa o quão saudável você pensa que é, de onde vem ou até a idade. Pode acontecer com qualquer um”, escreveu, nas redes sociais, a namorada de Marta.
**Warning: contains graphic photos • • • As we head into October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I encourage you all to be proactive in your health. Implore others around you to do the same. • • This disease does not discriminate. • • It doesn’t matter how healthy you think you are, where you come from, or even age. It can happen to anyone. • • I, as a 29 year old was diagnosed with non-invasive breast cancer (ductal carcinoma in situ). • • It wasn’t until my actual surgery (August 2nd) that my doctors also found a small amount of invasive cancer. Leaving me to be categorized as having stage 1 breast cancer. • • Because of my condition I then had a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction. • • Coming to terms with how my body would now be different was very difficult. Especially after the first removal of my bandages. • • After a depressing afternoon of tears and feeling sorry for myself, I quickly told myself to get the “F” over it and move on. I have my life to be grateful for. When many in my position are not as fortunate. • • I’m thankful for listening to my body and intuition. If I would have waited to see a doctor, I could have easily been diagnosed with a higher stage. • • Self exams and recognizing changes in your body are vital and can save your life. As they did mine. • • I’m thankful for the people and doctors I’ve trusted to help me make decisions in this scary time. As a woman and as a professional athlete. • • 3 months later, I’m glad I now have the opportunity to help others in some way. • • I don’t know who needs to hear this, but please don’t wait. Your health is important, in any and every regard. 💕 • • #transformationtuesday #breastcancerawareness #breastcancer #breastcancermonth #outubrorosa
