Martina Navratilova talks breast cancer


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.

Navratilova talks about it here.
