What a horrible disease. Poor family, really sad

So sad to hear this, far too young, such a cruel disease.

I just hope the media leave the family alone to grieve in peace, those poor children losing their Mummy hmm

It is so heartbreaking. That poor family.

That article pisses me off though, plenty about rio's football and achievements, nothing about Rebecca as a person, her achievements, ambitions or passions.

Rest in peace.

How awful for the family

Very sad. Hope the family have all the support they need.

Terrible news, those poor children.

Shocking news. I like Rio and I feel gutted for him and his children. Don't know what else to say.

TheWomanTheyCallJayne Sat 02-May-15 18:51:24

Very sad.
I don't know what else to say either. 34 is nothing, I'm 34 and have so much more to do. I hope Rio and the children get all the love and support they need.

So shocked and saddened by this. My heart goes out to me Rio and his family. And to Rebecca. Knowing you are leaving your children behind... I just cannot imagine the pain.

I had a family member who did at 39. She left behind four children, the youngest was 5.
Cancer is a horrible disease

Such very sad news, 3 children under the age of 10 left without a mum, my heart really goes out to them all

They say that a footballers career is over by age 34 which makes her death even more poignant.flowers RIP.
