Kimberley Ametoglou reveals shocking second cancer diagnosis

·

Formerly known as St Kilda schoolgirl Kimberley Duthie, author and entrepreneur Kimberley Ametoglou has revealed she is battling cervical cancer for a second time.

Kimberley was diagnosed with cervical cancer last year and entered surgery last week. Following the surgery, she was told by doctors that she had an unrelated rare tumour.

“Not where I wanted to be today. Still in shock but I’m staying positive,’’ she wrote on Instagram yesterday.

“I’ve been quiet about this but I’m devastated. When I was under last week during surgery, they found a rare tumour completely unrelated and I have been diagnosed with cancer again.”

“I am about to go in for surgery to mark up margins and measure the size of the cancerous mass. I love you all and I’ll see you once I’m out.”

Ametoglou now runs an eyelash salon in Queensland.

Ametoglou made headlines in 2010 and 2011 after leaking nude photos of St Kilda players and being caught in a hotel room with player manager Ricky Nixon. She is now releasing a tell-all book about her life, talking about her cancer diagnosis and events with the St Kilda players.

The mum of a four year-old son with husband Demirel Ametoglou, says she has been overwhelmed by support for her personal journey to heal and recover, and to “share my truth”.

“This is one of the most challenging things I have ever done, reminiscing on past traumas and a time in my life that I was at absolute rock bottom,’’ she said.

“I wanted to be able to share what I couldn’t say 10 years ago during many TV interviews.

“NDA contracts have finally expired now it’s 2021 and it’s my chance to finally close a chapter.”
