'At the highest points in life, you can have an unexpected stroke of bad luck and suddenly everything changes. It is hard to accept everything these days, but I begin another personal challenge in my life. I still trust that this will be a great season.

'Your messages of support and loving gestures give me even more strength to face this challenge.
Heartfelt thanks to all of you for your support.
See you soon.'
