Guerdy Abraira announced on Wednesday that she was diagnosed with breast cancer in March.
The RHOM star announced the news in a statement on her Instagram page. Thankfully, the cancer was caught early; however, Guerdy will still have to undergo surgery and post-operative treatment, which could include chemotherapy or radiation.
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.
Guerdy Abraira Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis
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.
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.
I will “guerdyfy” this cancer as I “guerdyfy” everything else in my life.
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.
The Miami-based event stylist is married to her husband, Russell Abraira. Guerdy and Russell have been married for 25 years and are high school sweethearts. They share two sons together – Liam, 9, and Miles, 14.
Guerdy is the second RHOM star to be diagnosed with cancer in recent months. In January, Julia Lemigova announced that her wife, Martina Navratilova, had been diagnosed with two forms of stage one cancer. Martina was diagnosed with stage one throat and breast cancer after having a swollen lymph node in her neck, which turned out to be cancerous. At the time, a mass was also found in her breast. In March, the tennis legend announced that she was “cancer free.”
Sending our prayers and love to Guerdy. We are wishing her good health and a speedy recovery.
RHOM is expected to return to Bravo for season 6 in late 2023 or early 2024.
