Linda Evangelista when breast cancer returned for the second time acted differently
Linda Evangelista has recently revealed that she has battled breast cancer twice in the past five years.
Evangelista appears on the new digital cover of the Wall Street Journal. In a candid interview, the supermodel, 58, revealed that she was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018.
"It was discovered at my annual mammogram," she told the media. "Because of other health factors and because I wanted to leave everything behind and not deal with this, I chose to have a bilateral mastectomy. Thinking I was fine and that breast cancer wasn't going to kill me."
However, in July 2022, Evangelista felt a lump in her breast and finally learned that her breast cancer had returned.
"Dig a hole in my chest," she told her oncologist after her second diagnosis. "I don't want to look pretty. I want you to dig. I want to see a hole in my chest when you're done. Do you understand me? I'm not going to die from this.”
Her oncologist told her after the surgery that there is a chance that the cancer will come back.
Evangelista says that because her future is uncertain, she is simply grateful for each day.
"I know I have one foot in the grave, but I'm totally in the party mood," she said.
