In her recent interview, she has revealed that cancer has returned and that she is now fighting for her life.
Cristiano Ronaldo's mother told a Portuguese TV station in an interview: “I was operated on another breast in Madrid, I've had radiotherapy and now I'm fighting for my life.”
The Juventus superstar has always been very vocal about his love for his mother, and Dolores was a constant companion of her son in many of the award ceremonies.
In 2009, Ronaldo donated £100,000 to build a cancer center at the hospital which treated his mother for the ailment.
Although the former Real Madrid man has been enjoying his professional life with Juve, Ronaldo has been having a difficult personal life.
He has been involved in tax-fraud and rape allegation cases apart from his mother's worsening health.
