    Default Rio Ferdinand's wife Rebecca Ellison dies from cancer

    The wife of former Manchester United and England captain Rio Ferdinand has died from cancer.

    The QPR defender, 36, released a statement saying his "wonderful wife and soul mate" Rebecca Ellison had "passed away peacefully" at a London hospital.

    Ms Ellison, 34, who married Ferdinand in 2009, had breast cancer.



    She leaves behind three children, Lorenz, nine, Tate, six, and four-year-old Tia.

    In a statement, Ferdinand said she died on Friday night.

    "Rebecca, my wonderful wife, passed away peacefully after a short battle with cancer at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London," the footballer said on QPR's website.

    "She was a fantastic loving mother to our three beautiful children. She will be missed as a wife, sister, aunt, daughter and granddaughter. She will live on in our memory, as a guide and inspiration.
    Myself, my parents Janice and Julian, along with Rebecca's parents Lesley and Stephen, would like to thank our families, friends and my club colleagues who have rallied around in these desperate days, weeks and months."

    Ferdinand thanked the staff who treated his wife at the south London hospital, adding: "I would also like to express my gratitude for the dedication and expertise of the staff led by Professors Johnstone and Clarke at the Royal Marsden.

    "Their valiant efforts to prolong Rebecca's all-too-short life will not be forgotten."

    QPR's players will be wearing a black armband for the match against Liverpool at Anfield later.

    In a statement, the west London club said: "The thoughts of everyone at Queens Park Rangers Football Club are with Rio and his family at this immensely difficult time."

    Ferdinand, who grew up in Peckham, south-east London, was capped by England 81 times and has also played for West Ham United and Leeds United

    Sad.
    Check for lumps and if the right age go for mammograms.
    And unfortunately heavy smoking, heavy drinking and inheriting certain genes drives the likelihood of a woman developing breast cancer up considerably.

    I never thought I'd have any sympathy for a footballer or his wife- so many are trophy wives- its lovely to see her described as his soul mate - so it is very sad and tough for the family -
    Seek and you shall find!
