Janice Dickinson Proclaims She Is A ‘Fighter’ While Emotionally Talking About Her Breast Cancer Diagnosis!
Janice Dickinson isn’t letting her breast cancer diagnosis get her down!
For Wednesday’s episode of The Doctors, the supermodel opened up about her recent diagnosis during her appearance on the show. So brave!
As we reported, the 61 year old announced that she was sick at the end of last month after a doctor found a lump in her right breast during a routine exam.
While Miz Dickinson’s illness may be a “journey she never thought she’d be on,” the former America’s Next Top Model judge is more than ready to fight to get better. Now that’s what we like to hear!
“I use to obsess over image, I’m the world’s first supermodel, I’ve been in front of cameras. I will never keep quiet when something is bothering me. I’m a fighter. I’m not the type of woman to fall apart but it’s nothing to downplay.”
While Janice may seem strong now, that doesn’t mean she wasn’t terrified when she first learned about her sickness. She continued:
“It’s shocking, everything hit me at once. My mother died of cancer, so I know how bad I felt when I heard about my mother. My son broke down. Honestly haven’t cried in about 30 years, and just lately I’m tearful because I felt fear for the first time. And I don’t get scared. I kind of lost it.”
Nonetheless, the reality TV star is NOT letting cancer “define” how she lives her life. In fact, it appears that Janice is more determined than ever to see her daughter get married, meet her future grandchildren — oh, and marry her doctor fianc├â┬⌐ Rocky. Aww!
Still, the industry vet is using her diagnosis as a platform to raise awareness about breast cancer. Janice pleaded to the viewers:
“I’m doing this for all women, please sisters have regular breast examinations. I can be emotional and happy and sad and afraid but I’m not alone. I now await surgery.”
We’re wish Janice only the best during this tough time. Be sure to ch-ch-check out your local listing for the talent agent’s appearance on The Doctors.
