Cristiano Ronaldo is regarded as one of the best soccer players ever and rightly so the Portuguese defends the claim every time he walks onto the pitch. But Ronaldo might not have been as successful as he is if he didn’t have a constant support system beside him, his mother, Maria Dolores Aveiro.
Maria recently opened up about her health on her Instagram, as she thanked her doctors for helping her with her smile. She previously suffered from major terminal illnesses which have rendered her thankful for the gift of life and doesn’t leave an opportunity to thank those around her.
Ronaldo’s mother has been constantly beside her son ever since his Sporting CP days. She has been spotted besides Ronaldo at various award functions as the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner has always talked about how special his bond is with her.

Ronaldo earlier talked about how his mother sacrificed to support him in his childhood as his father was an alcoholic. It was his mother that took care of the family consisting of Ronaldo, his brother, and two sisters.
He said: “My mother reared me up by sacrificing her life for me. She went to bed hungry to feed me. We had no money. She worked 7 days a week and worked nights as a cleaner to buy me a pair of football boots so I could play. My whole success is dedicated to her.”
She has also recently joined Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia as he has settled in the new country. The former Real Madrid man moved out of his posh hotel recently and moved into a proper Arab house.
Medical history of Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother
Ronaldo’s mother, Maria Aveiro, has been diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of times in her life. She was first diagnosed with the disease in 2007 while Cristiano was still playing for Manchester United. Maria was subjected to another surgery in 2019 as she had again developed cancer in her breast. She had confessed in public that she was ‘fighting for her life’.

The most recent health problem she had was back in 2020 when she suffered from a stroke. It was an ischemic stroke which is regarded as one of the most common strokes. Ronaldo thanked the medical staff for treating her mother well after the stroke.
Maria’s life has been full of ups and downs regarding her health but she has always been there for Ronaldo. Cristiano is currently approaching the climax of his career at Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League.
