9 Apr – Former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres recently announced that she is free from melanoma.

As reported on Rappler, in an Instagram Live conversation with Pops Fernandez she had over the weekend, Torres stated that she started treatment since finding out about the cancer in February last year and is finally recovered after more than a year.

"Last week, on Monday, I had my last test and everything was negative. I'm done with treatment, it took me a year and then now for the next two years, I'm going to be doing tests every three months just to be safe," she said.

The "Basta't Kasama Kita" actress also thanked everybody for their prayers, saying that she was amazed by the amount of love and support shown towards her.

As to whether she will be visiting the Philippines again, the Puerto Rican beauty said that she would love to do so, as it has been three years since her last visit.

"It's one of those things that's always at the back of my mind that I have to go back and this crisis happens, and it made me realise that if you want to do something, do it. As soon as this is over, I definitely need to go back. I miss everybody," she said.
