Swimming legend Susie Maroney has announced that she is battling cancer and has opened up about her diagnosis.
The 41-year-old is scheduled for surgery at Kareena Private Hospital in Sydney, where a nine-centimetre long incision is expected to be made to remove a malignant melanoma.
Susie opened up to New Idea, saying she feared for her three young children.
“They’re so young and they need me,” she told the magazine. “I’m their primary carer and if anything happens to me. I was crying when I heard those words, because this is something you can die from.”
Susie said she is hoping that doctors are able to remove the whole cancer, otherwise further tests will be needed to see if they cancer has spread.
