BRITISH radio host JENNI MURRAY told her BBC RADIO 4 WOMAN'S HOUR listeners yesterday that she is battling breast cancer. The 56-year-old was diagnosed with the disease two weeks ago and will undergo surgery next month.
The mother-of-two said, "Treatments are very good these days and I know quite a bit about this disease thanks to working on the show. Fingers crossed, everything should be all right. The prognosis, by the way, is excellent and I plan to be back as soon as I feel up to it."
