New Democracy MP Dora Bakoyannis was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. In fact, she made the announcement on her twitter page, writing that the disease has been identified at a very early stage.
"Five hundred people a year are diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in Greece. I am one of them now. Multiple Myeloma at a very early stage and with the best possible prognosis for the course of the disease. It is never easy to hear that you have cancer.What you do not control, what suddenly comes to you from nowhere, it scares you more. And it scares you, not only for you, but for those you love and they love you, yet this disease is fought and defeated. I will continue to work normally and fight for this place I love so much, along with my treatment.On the other 499, I have one thing to say: this is a disease you are learning to live with. At the same time. It is another condition, another issue in everyday life. It is not something more. We will not faint. We will not change. I believe that I owed you the truth. I am in the hands of excellent doctors that our country has and I feel determined for this victory and very optimistic for the future ".
