Navratilova announced earlier Monday that she was battling both throat cancer and breast cancer. She should start treatment next week.

“This double whammy is serious but still fixable, and I hope for a favorable outcome,” the 18-time Grand Slam singles champion said in a statement to the Women’s Tennis Association. “It will stink for a while, but I will fight with everything I have.”

Navratilova shared that she first noticed an enlarged lymph node in her neck while attending the 2022 WTA Finals in Fort Worth, Texas in November. A subsequent biopsy showed stage 1 throat cancer, and further tests led to the discovery of stage 1 breast cancer.

The legendary athlete had previously had breast cancer in 2010 and underwent a lumpectomy.
