Isabel Ordaz continues fighting colon cancer that they detected him a few months ago. The former protagonist of 'No one lives here' and 'La que se cerca' visited her this Friday, in which she spoke about the process of improvement.

When they tell you what you have it's complicated. Consciousness needs time, you are stupefied. “The word cancer stays hanging around you,” said the actress, also explaining the reason why she wrote 'Life Elsewhere', her new novel: “My body could be given over to medicinewith tremendous therapies such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy, but what interested me was telling and making a story.

I wasn't writing to publish a book, just to pull myself together.. Psychologically, the 'I' begins to stay in the background: I could no longer be a professional, but rather a social being,” Ordaz stressed on Antena 3's morning program.

The actress also explained Susanna Griso what the feeling was when she was told that she had cancer: “You are going to get on a rocket and go to the moon. That path of facing pain has been a game of lights and shadows. The disease is stigmatized in the society in which we live. We continually go towards the summit, triumph or victory. Cancer is the story of a failure and, socially, you see that people look at you in a strange way and you begin to see another way of looking at people. You yourself also need to not be so out there. The windows are closed a little.”

Cancer is scary, Illness is scary, just as ruin is scary. They are the legs of misfortune. The disease is not pleasant and it seems that it can be spread. When you are at home and they call you on the phone, it makes you very happy. The body abandons you and you can't even fasten your shoes. “I loved having visitors and friends come with a little package of cookies,” she said.

In addition to commenting that she has had “a lot of love and great solidarity”, Isabel Ordaz also revealed that she has become a little “tearful” due to all the circumstances surrounding her illness: “With cancer you forget the word 'hope' because it implies a futureand with this disease you live day by day, the most immediate present.
