Star 94's Simmons Battling Breast Cancer
March 31, 2010 at 8:13 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS sends our best wishes to LINCOLN FINANCIAL Top 40 WSTR (STAR 94)/ATLANTA morning co-host CINDY SIMMONS, who announced on yesterday's show (3/30) that she's been diagnosed with breast cancer.
SIMMONS blogged, "I figure if I keep saying it, I will stop being in shock. It's funny ... I think my whole life with knowing my mom has had it, that I just assumed that one day I would get it. That being said, you would have thought that would have prepared one for receiving the words ...'You have breast cancer' ... Yahhh, not so much. :o)
I do know that because my belief is faith, family and friends ... I will get through this. My mom survived this terrible disease twice and I can't let her down. I CAN beat this too. Plus, my beautiful angel of a daughter LILY kissed my chest and said 'Mommy, I am a doctor and I kissed you and now your breast won't be sick anymore.' How do you argue with that? It was perfect. And that's all she knows ... Mommy has a sick breast and she kissed it and made it all better. And if only it were that simple."
SIMMONS has been a supporter of many ATLANTA area charities, including breast cancer causes. You can listen to the announcement from yesterday's show by clicking here.
