Sylvie van der Vaart Undergoes Treatment for Breast Cancer


It’s been revealed that Sylvie Van Der Vaart, who is 31-years-old, is about to begin chemotherapy after a breast cancer scare.

She had an operation last month, and luckily, was able to catch out the disease at an early stage. The chemo she is undergoing is preventative.

Her spokesperson has confirmed this news and said:

Sylvie and Rafael are currently on holiday. They would appreciate being able to recover from this difficult period in private. I would like to ask the press and other media to give Sylvie and her family the time and space to come to terms with this news and work on her recovery.

Preventative or not, chemo truly sucks and we sincerely wish the lovely Sylvie a fast and full return to good health.
