Mexican actress Daniela Romo is recovering after surgery to remove a malignant breast tumor, one of her friends told Efe.
“Daniela is fine,” theater producer Tina Galindo said. “They detected a malignant tumor, but thanks to their finding it in time they operated and now she is undergoing chemotherapy.”
The surgery took place on Nov. 4, Romo said Tuesday night in a letter to the media, thanking fans for their support and explaining that she had not discussed her condition because she did not want to upset them.
The entertainment publication TV Notas recently reported on Romo’s cancer and said she has been dealing with the illness since October “in silence and surrounded by love.”
TV Notas published photos of the actress arriving at a hospital that specializes in cancer cases and provided some details of her treatment.
The 52-year-old Romo has been in show business for nearly four decades as a singer and actress.
She has appeared in telenovelas such as “Triunfo del amor,” “Alborada” and “Sortilegio.”
