SHERYL CROW HAS SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER.

Oh this is so terrible! Singer Sheryl Crow had surgery on Wednesday for "minimally invasive" breast cancer. Her spokesperson has confirmed that her prognosis is excellent and she will have to undergo radiation treatment as a precaution. It was only a couple weeks ago that Sheryl and her fiance Lance Armstrong broke off their engagement. He released the following statement regarding Sheryl today:
"I was devastated to hear this news. Once again I'm reminded of just how pervasive this illness is as it has now touched someone I love deeply. Based on my contact in recent days with Sheryl, her doctor, and her family, I am confident that she will have a full and complete recovery and the world will be a better place for it. And to all of her fans and friends out there, please keep Sheryl in your thoughts and prayers yet know that I have never known a stronger woman in my life."

Sheryl released the following statement on her website today:
Approximately 1 in 7 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime and more than 2 million Americans are living with breast cancer today. I am joining the more than 200,000 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. We are a testament to the importance of early detection and new treatments. I encourage all women everywhere to advocate for themselves and for their future. See your doctor and be proactive about your health. More than 10 million Americans are living with cancer, and they demonstrate the ever-increasing possibility of living beyond cancer. I am inspired by the brave women who have faced this battle before me and grateful for the support of family and friends."

As the husband of a 5 year survivor I encourage all of you "tabloid whores" out there to practice monthly self exams. And don't buy into the "over 40" bullshit, my wife was only 37 when diagnosed. See my June 05 "Relay For Life" post....

That was a great statement by Lance. It is good to see that these two will always care for each other and she needs the support when she undergoes radiation.

Man, I am truly crushed to hear this news. I hope that she does make the full recovery that we've been assured of. Please get better, Sheryl.

Lance A. is full of s--t. It is no coincidence that these two broke up shortly before this announcement. Dude walked out on his wife after she stuck by him through years of cancer treatment and it's clear he's not going through this again. He's on to greener pastures, and I hope when Sheryl Crow recovers she dedicates at least an entire album to what a turd ball this man is. L
