She has never cared and has stayed there until her health allowed. Calé, she married her husband Juan Pantoja, alias “Chiquetete,” in November 52, a flamenco singer who was very successful in his time.

The pain we feel is inexplicable, the knot in our stomach that lives with us. She assured that both she and her husband “lived 20 years for and for her. We put everything aside and mortgaged our life and our marriage. I personally accompanied her from a very young age to all tournaments, in fact abandoning my husband and my other children. Then my husband left his job to accompany and help her ”and although“ we tried to do the best we could ”n“ it is clear that we failed with her ”.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother is the perfect profile of ‘mother courage’. A tireless fighter who overcame multiple obstacles and sufferings before enjoying her son’s worldwide stardom. She herself told it so in her memoir.
In 2005, she became the widower of José Dinis Aveiro, Cristiano’s father, who died as a result of his alcohol problems. Three years later, they detected breast cancer. Although at the time she recovered from this difficult trance, the cancer returned almost a decade later and she was operated on for a tumor in Madrid, the city where she lived with Ronaldo. Before, in 2014, she had been the victim of a heart attack precisely when her daughter Katia made her entry into the reality show ‘Survivors’ (Telecinco).
There have been few obstacles that Dolores Aveiro has not managed to overcome throughout a life that has gone from poverty to opulence, from marginalization to world fame. Dolores Aveiro’s is a unique case in the world of football: no mother of a player reaches such levels of popularity, perhaps because she has shown her pride in her son on television on numerous occasions. The Portuguese perceive her as a close woman, who managed to raise the little Christian with the few means available to her.
He has suffered greatly throughout his life, beginning with a childhood in a hospice due to the untimely death of his mother when he was only 5 years old. Her stepmother mistreated her and the financial hardships meant little food at the time of sitting at the table. This is how it grew, in the midst of the humility of the less attractive neighborhoods of the capital of Madeira. It has not exactly walked a path of roses. So much so that when she was pregnant with Cristiano – she has three more children: Elma, Katia and Hugo – she came to consider having an abortion, because she thought she would not be able to carry it out.
However, her perseverance is beyond doubt and she has been loved when the great Portuguese companies claimed her to take advantage of her popular pull. This has been reflected in several advertising campaigns that it carried out for the leading operator in the Portuguese telephone market, either alone or together with CR7.
