Real Housewives of Miami Star Guerdy Abraira Diagnosed with Breast Cancer
Abraira took to Instagram on Wednesday to share the news with her fans. She shared a picture of herself with a message that read, “In March, I found out some news about my health. I was in St. Barts having the time of my life when my doctor called me with results following a regular mammogram checkup. I have breast cancer.”
The reality star further revealed that the diagnosis was the reason behind her recent break from social media and thanked her fans for their support. “It took me a while to process it all and this is why I took a break from social media last month as many noticed. Many of you reached out to check on me and I am thankful for your caring gestures.”
Talking about her treatment, she wrote, “For now I am preparing for my upcoming surgery, and then will come my treatment plan. This process is definitely intense and what I ask of you is empowerment not pity.” Abraira then referenced her catchphrase ‘guerdyfy’ that she often uses on RHOM. “I will “guerdyfy” this cancer as I guerdyfy everything else in my life.”
Abraira Says the Cancer is in the Early Stage
“I am lucky that this breast cancer was discovered at an early stage – it is still scary of course, but I have love and support from those around me and that alone is the fuel that I need. For those who do not get health checks regularly, I urge you to. Your life depends on it,” she concluded.
A number of her colleagues showered their love and prayers for Abraira. “You got this girl… We got this ❤️💪🏼,” wrote Dr. Nicole Martin. Larsa Pippen commented, “Praying for you 🙏🏼.” Real Housewives of Potomac star Candiace Dillard-Bassett also wrote, “Guerdy, thank you for sharing this with us! Sending you so much love and healing❤️.”
Abraira’s Friend Martina Navratilova Recently Recovered from Breast Cancer
Abraira’s diagnosis comes just months after she supported her co-star Julia Lemigova’s wife, Martina Navratilova, battle the disease. Navratilova was diagnosed with throat and breast cancer in late 2022 and announced her recovery in March 2023.
Abraira talked about her friend’s treatment in an interview and said, “It’s looking very, very positive. And it’s on the preventative side, when they found out, it’s early. And we [pray] and that’s it. We’re keeping our head down and [hoping] for the best for her.”
“I spoke to [Lemigova] as soon as it happened. We were supposed to get together for my birthday, but obviously she had to take care of some things medically for Martina. They’re in great spirits, that’s the good news,” she added.
We wish Guerdy Abraira a speedy recovery! Stay tuned for more news and updates.
