Sheryl Crow with breast cancer

Sheryl Crow diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoes surgery

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,186032,00.html
http://sherylcrow.com/main/news/news.asp


Sheryl Crow underwent successful minimally invasive surgery for breast cancer on Wednesday February 22nd. Her doctors confirm her prognosis as excellent and she will receive radiation treatment as a precaution.

With much regret, she must postpone her complete tour of North America which was scheduled for March/April.

It is Sheryl's intention to reschedule as much of the tour as reasonably possible. Specific details will follow shortly. For any patron who wishes a refund and not wait for the new date, they should redeem their tickets at point of purchase only. Please check in with www.sherylcrow.com or with the local venue directly for updated information.

“Approximately 1 in 7 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and more than 2 million American 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.”

Sheryl Crow

I'll wear pink (not sure if that's the color, but I support breast cancer research) as a higher power must be involved. If Sheryl advocates and does good, it's due to that power.......the power of yellow!!!!

I hope she does well,

Ebb

Somethings should be sacred and not ridiculed but that's just my uncaffeined opinion this morning. Heard today she is doing fine and will undergo radialogie as a procotion.

I didn't think that testicular cancer and breast cancer were the same thing, but that's just my uneducated layman's opinion.

If she went in for surgery on Feb 22nd and she has to do rad as a precaution - any guesses as to how long ago she might have first noticed this? Does anyone have enough of an understanding of this kind of thing to know whether it is a fast growing thing she just found or if it might have been something that has been around for a bit but she just didn't talk about. I hope she has a speedy recovery.

My mom has breast cancer. She had the surgery but was on radiation for a while because breast cancer is a sort of cancer where it's likely to come back unless the breast is completely removed. Extremely rough. I feel for Sheryl Crow.

A quality diagnosis would probably option her for surgery within days if not hours. My dad, mother and 3 grandparents died with cancer. I have lived arouind it all my life. Bad stuff. If there is no need to wait (other unresolved medical conditions) then getting the cancer out is the best option in many cases but not all. For instance throat cancer surgery might involve removing the vocal cords. In that case Chemo and radiation theropy is a high quality option. Really just depends on the circumstances but just removing a small tumor from the breast can happen very soon after diagnosis.
