Zoleka Mandela reveals that her cancer has returned after breast cancer.
The star has inspired people with her story of survival, but she is heartbroken and scared to learn that this time she might not make it.
“I’ve had back pain for over a month now and recently saw a GP when I couldn’t take the excruciating pain in my left rib any longer. “A few days ago, I went for an X-ray of the chest and ribs – I have a pathological fracture and swelling from cancer,” she wrote.
Cancer in the bones cannot be cured, hence the fear and the cry.
“From what she told me, bone cancer cannot be eliminated or cured. I have bone metastases. I have just cleared CAT and am waiting for the results. I don’t even have words to express my thoughts and feelings, words to describe how scared I am right now.
Zoleka, dying, thinks about her children.
“What will I tell my children? How do I tell them that this time I can’t live my life as a survivor? How do I tell them everything is going to be okay when it isn’t? I’m dying… I don’t want to die.”
