Tennis legend Martina Navratilova got her breast cancer diagnosis while she was in Aspen, Colorado back in Feb. 2010.

It was the most common type of non-invasive cancer, ductal carcinoma in situ.

She had a successful lumpectomy a month later.

Later, she underwent radiation treatments in Paris – four times a week for six weeks. The two middle weeks came during the French Open where she commentated and played the legends doubles with Jana Novotna.

Novotna, who died of cancer a few weeks ago at age 49, accompanied her to her final treatment.
