Unfortunately, every year the number of cancer patients is increasing, but progress does not stand still. Medical institutions carry out a lot of research, scientists are working on new methods of diagnosis and treatment, new drugs are emerging, and doctors have learned to cope with many forms of cancer. Doctors more and more often declare that cancer is not a sentence, it just needs to be treated, and the heroes of our material prove that it is possible to defeat a serious illness!
In 2012, the ex-soloist of the legendary group Tatu was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Julia learned about the disease at the first stage, when she was being examined. The singer underwent surgery, but due to the peculiarities of the structure of the throat, the vocal nerve was touched, and Julia was left without a voice.
As Volkova recalled in an interview for “7 Days”: “It was hard to read the messages of fans on the Internet: they knew nothing about my illness and wrote that I was just hanging out, drinking, taking drugs.”
Doctors from Seoul returned Yulia's voice, and now everything is fine in her life. Not so long ago it became known that the star of the "noughties" got married.
The singer ignored the alarming symptoms for a long time, and when the pain became unbearable, she immediately went to the operating table. Svetlana learned that she was sick with cancer right after the operation, barely recovering from anesthesia. Doctors excised the tumor in the intestine and had to make a hole for the tube in the abdomen. Serious complications began almost immediately and a second operation followed. And on the third, reconstructing, Svetlana decided after 8 years. All these years, the singer lived with a pipe and a bag, continuing to perform at concerts, filming and touring.
The treatment was long and painful - 18 operations, chemotherapy, radiation. But she did not allow herself to think about death and developed a "daily obligatory program of work on herself." 20 years have passed since then, and it was then, in the intensive care unit of 62 hospitals, that the first 5 books were written. For many years Daria has been the Ambassador of the Together Against Breast Cancer charity program.
Recently, Daria posted on Instagram a photo with the same surgeon who saved her life.
“62 hospital. I came here on business. I barely persuaded the head of the department, Igor Anatolyevich Groshev, to take a photo. Here he does not like it. 20 years ago Igor, then a young surgeon, performed all my operations. He saved me. Gave me life,”the writer said.
Lyme did not dare to talk about the fight against cancer for a long time. In her case, cancer was found at the last stage, and doctors did not give a rosy prognosis. The singer said that she had to go through several stages: fear, a desire to close off from society, envy of those who are healthy. An operation was urgently performed, followed by a long recovery process. But she was able to defeat the disease: “Nothing remained the same,” Lyme admitted in an interview. “My attitude to many things, to people has changed, I myself and my idea of what is really important have changed.”
A terrible diagnosis was made to the star five years ago. She had to undergo several operations, undergo chemotherapy courses, but then there was a relapse, and Christina once again had to repeat all the tests. According to her, the relapse does not cause shock, but it is worse, because the patient already knows what to go through. During the treatment, Christina was very much helped by her relatives, friends and daughter, from whom the actress did not hide her illness. Today her condition has stabilized. She has completely revised her outlook on life and believes that the disease has made her stronger.
The Russian actor was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1987. The operation and treatment of the artist took place in Moscow.The actor recalls that he thought then only about one thing: how to quickly gain strength. He is very grateful to the doctors, and says that the huge support of his beloved wife helped him cope with the disease.
The ex-soloist of the Na-Na group survived cancer of the lymphatic system. He spent a year and a half in the hospital on IVs, and then began to live anew. Fell in love, got married, but in 2012 experienced a relapse. Then Vladimir and his wife Maria were expecting a daughter. Levkin accepted the news calmly, because he saw no reason to give up, and Maria, despite her pregnancy, was on duty at the bedside of her beloved man in the oncological center. The disease has receded, now the spouses are raising 5-year-old Nika and delight fans with joint pictures on social networks.
The star of the TV series "Univer" and "Sasha Tanya" learned about cancer at the age of 31. Immediately after the diagnosis was made, he went to a German clinic for treatment, and after six months of intensive treatment, he felt better. The actor returned to filming, and not so long ago he met a new lover.
