Janice Dickinson reveals she has breast cancer
The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant and America’s Next Top Model judge said she received the news about two weeks ago.
Lisa Bloom, a lawyer for the model, said: “Janice is going to fight and she will not let this diagnosis define her. She wants to encourage all women to have regular check-ups as that is how her cancer was discovered.”
Janice, 61, told the Daily Mail that a “pea-size” lump was found on her right breast during a visit to a doctor and three days later she had a mammogram and biopsy. She will undergo surgery and radiation therapy.
“I became fearful,” she said of the diagnosis. “But not for myself. I was fearful for my two children. My fiance, my loving fiance Rocky.”
She added: “Don’t feel sorry for me, this is not a pity party, I’m Janice Dickinson and I’m gonna stick around for a long, long time, you ain’t getting rid of me yet.
“It’s still quite shocking. You know, I’ve had plastic surgery and I’ve had breast implants and I’ve always been very vocal of what I’ve done, because I tell the truth about everything. As I am right now.”
