Muere Miss Venezuela 2000, a los 28 años de edad

18 de diciembre de 2011

HOUSTON, 18 (EUROPA PRESS)

Luchó incansablemente, pero al final, por desgracia, el cáncer ganó la batalla. Eva Ekvall, Miss Venezuela 2000 murió el sábado víctima de un cáncer de mamá, que le fue diagnosticado en 2010. Antes de morir la joven de 28 años quiso dar un mensaje a las mujeres, que gastan mucho dinero en belleza y no en salud: "si estás enferma no te vas a ver bella".

A Eva Ekval le diagnosticaron cáncer de mama en 2010, una década después de haberse alzado con la corona de Miss Venezuela. Pero en este ocasión, ha sido la enfermedad la que ha acabado venciendo a pesar de todo el esfuerzo que puso la joven.

Ekval, de 28 años murió el pasado sábado en Houston donde estaba recibiendo un tratamiento, tal y como informó el escritor venezolano Leonardo Padrón a Globovisión.

"Estaba demostrando una templanza y un coraje extraordinarios en su lucha contra el cáncer", confesaba la fuente.

Eva Ekval publicó un libro, en abril de este año -'Foco de Fuera'-, con su testimonio para sensibilizar sobre la importancia de un diagnóstico precoz.

En la portada la joven aparecía mostrando su cara, sin pelo y con una mirada que dice más que cualquier palabra.

"Se invierte mucho dinero en verse bella y no en salud", confesaba la joven de 28 años, a la par que mandaba un mensaje a todas las mujeres: "si estás enferma no te vas a ver bella".
