Martina Navratilova battling cancer with Kilimanjaro climb

Nine-time Wimbledon champion and retired tennis legend Martina Navratilova is refusing to let her recent breast cancer diagnosis slow her down – she’s preparing to climb Mount Kilimanjaro later this year.

Doctors caught the condition in its early stages after Navratilova underwent a routine mammogram in February.

Navratilova was distraught when she first learned of her condition, but she has since vowed to live life to the full – and is starting by training for the grueling climb up the African peak in December.

The record-breaking champion is carrying out the challenge to raise funds for the Laureus World Sports Academy – which uses sport to aid positive social change.

Speaking on British TV show Loose Women, she says, “(Cancer) does make you take (a) pause and re-evaluate, make sure that you’re doing everything you want to do in life, and I am… (I’m climbing Mount Kilimanjaro) for Laureus, I’m a member of the Laureus Academy and we have a Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. We try and raise money for that and so I’m climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. I spend a lot of time in Kenya and Tanzania, so I’m looking forward to that… I’m hoping to make it to the top.”

Navratilova has undergone a lumpectomy and will begin a six-week course of radiation therapy in May. According to reports, her prognosis is excellent.
