The journalist has announced her temporary withdrawal from the sets: “You are going to allow me to dedicate myself and my family for once in my life.”
This Tuesday has been a difficult day for Ana Rosa Quintana. The popular presenter and producer shared, first with her team and then with her entire audience, “the hardest thing that ever happened to me.” Ana Rosa began reporting that she suffers from breast cancer: “I have been detected a carcinoma in a breast” and announcing her withdrawal from the sets temporarily to focus on the medical treatment she has to face from now on.
The presenter has been brave and confident that she will have a good recovery. In recent days, there were many viewers who made notice the absence of the communicator from their program without giving explanations of any kind, something unusual.

Ana Rosa’s program (@elprogramadear) November 2, 2021
“I started this program when my children were just over a month old and many things have happened, some wonderful, most of them. And also dislikes because that is life. Today I want to say goodbye for a season, I hope it is not very long. They have detected a carcinoma in a breast. Fortunately, it is localized, there are no metastases but it requires intense treatment that will keep me away from this set and from these colleagues who are also my family, “he began.
On October 19, the World Day Against Breast Cancer was celebrated, which aims to make all women aware of the importance of prevention since the earlier a diagnosis is made, the more possibilities there are to eradicate the disease. In this sense, the journalist took advantage of the occasion “to remind all women not to miss a review.” Ana Rosa said she was calm and trusted her doctors. «I am fortunate to have so much love around me. I hope everything has a happy ending and fortunately research and medicine have advanced a lot in breast cancer, “he acknowledged.
Cancer in 2010
The Madrilenian has been in charge of the Telecinco morning for 17 years. Not even the pandemic could take her away from the sets despite the harsh moments of uncertainty that were experienced. In fact, this is not the first time that the popular presenter has confessed that she has cancer. Precisely on October 19, in this case, 2018, he said that he had overcome breast cancer in 2010. “In July he was diagnosed and I began my vacation. I had surgery on August 2 and I have to say that it was a grade 1 in situ breast cancer, practically nothing because I did not need chemotherapy, “he said at the time. He did not take leave and went to his program every day before going to give radiation therapy sessions. On that occasion, he did not make it public so as not to scare his six-year-old children.
Now she trusts again that everything will be fine: “I know that I am going to heal and that I have a difficult road ahead as many brave women know,” he said. Ana Rosa has assured that, as in the previous time, she will try to make “a life as normal as possible” and that she will continue “working behind the cameras, in the production.” However, it will not be publicly exposed: “If I didn’t have such an exposed and stressful job, I could probably continue to share every morning with you but you are going to allow me to dedicate myself and my family for once in my life.” .
This is a bump, a test. You are also part of my family. Thank you from the heart for everything you have given me so far and I hope you continue to give to my colleagues. They really are the soul of the program so see you soon, “he ended.
Ana Rosa said goodbye with a “see you later”, leaving her companions deeply moved and holding back tears. Now, as happens in summer, Ana Terradillos stays at the political table, Patricia Pardo in the news section and Joaquín Prat in the heart talk.
At the gates of Mediaset the reporters of the agencies were waiting for him, to whom he promised that he will continue to “still give a lot of trouble” despite which he knows that he has a complicated process ahead of him.
Social networks were quickly flooded with messages of support for the journalist. Politicians from across the parliamentary arch wished him the best, including the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, who sent him “a lot of love and all his strength.” “I hope you have a speedy recovery and can return to the screens in a short time,” wrote the president. The president of Congress, Meritxell Batet, the leader of the Popular Party, Pablo Casado, the vice president of the Government, Yolanda Díaz, the leader of the popular people of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso or that of citizens, Inés Arrimadas also wished him a quick improvement.
Beyond the political scene, numerous colleagues in the profession dedicated words of encouragement to him. Starting with his direct competitor, Susanna Griso, presenter of Antena Tres’ morning, Espejo Público, from which he sent her an affectionate message: “Ana Rosa, lots of courage, lots of strength and from here we wish you a speedy recovery.” Other well-known faces of communication such as Sandra Barneda, Toñi Moreno, Sandra Golpe, Carlos Herrera, Ana Pastor or Jesús Cintora added to the good wishes.
Very special has been the message that Julia Otero has sent him. The presenter has just announced that she has overcome the cancer that has kept her away from the radio for several months and has wanted to convey hope to her professional colleague in these difficult times: «The mountain seems very high, dear Ana Rosa. It is, but do not look to the top: surrender to the small path of each day. Today it seems impossible but time is your ally. It will pass and life will return. So be it.
