Carlota was runner-up in Spain in 400m hurdles and was preparing to become champion when she was diagnosed with breast cancer at a very young age. After chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy she had to reinvent herself - today she is a triathlete and has achieved one of her dreams - to be a mother.

She and Dr. Garcia Estevez share a very special bond. Together they have been through very hard times. They have not seen each other for months, although they talk often. Today Carlota is going to introduce the doctor to someone.
