Eva perã³n was lobotomized as part of cervical cancer treatment new research provides a sad look at both the last days of former argentinian first lady eva perã³n and how severe pain caused by cancer and other diseases was sometimes treated back in the 1950s. It's well-known that perã³n died of cervical cancer when she was only 33, but a yale researcher says that several months before she died "evita" was given a lobotomy.
