She will be admitted today for surgery. The former president of the Chamber and now a deputy of the Democratic Party Laura Boldrini, 59, made it known, with a post su Facebook, of being ill and therefore having to interrupt her political commitments for some time.

«After days of medical examinations», he wrote, «the news that I feared most has arrived, that every person most fears. Unfortunately, the disease is part of life but you are never ready to face it. Tomorrow I will be hospitalized to undergo surgery and then a path of treatment and rehabilitation awaits me ».

The former Speaker of the House admits his fears. “I’m scared? Yes, I’m a little scared. I think anyone in my place would have it. At the same time, however, I have great confidence in who will operate on me and I also have the determination to fight to return soon to the normality of my life ».

And he addresses his colleagues and citizens directly: «I will therefore be unable, in the coming weeks, to follow political and parliamentary activities with the usual consistency, and I am very sorry about this, but so it is. For this reason, I wanted to make known the news of my illness myself ». Laura Boldrini, however, is confident, because she knows that, in this path, she will not be alone. «Thanks to my family, to all my friends and friends, to my colleagues and to the health personnel who I’m sure they will help me in this battle with the right care, affection and closeness ».

Among the many messages of solidarity, even those of historical opponents: “Political battles give way to wishes for a speedy recovery,” wrote Matteo Salvini. «There is no joking about health. Good luck Laura ».
