Wonder Woman breast cancer PSA
  • Does this breast cancer awareness PSA gratuitously showcase Wonder Woman’s boobs? Yeah, but it seems like a lot of breast cancer awareness PSAs are gratuitously sexual nowadays. [Yahoo Shine]
  • The Vanity Fair writer and author of God Is Not Great Christopher Hitchens died yesterday of cancer. [People]
  • Lindsay Lohan’s former bodyguard Lee Weaver has written a tell-all book about working for Hollywood’s biggest celebs and he claims Lindsay was almost shot one night during what sounded like a drug deal. Lee claims Lindsay stormed up to a dude and accused him of ripping her off and slapped him in the face. The dude then pulled a gun on her and Lee had to intervene, possibly saving her life. He also called her “charming” when sober but a “demon” if she had been drinking or doing drugs. [ONTD] Keep reading »

“For me, it was important to get the cancer out. That’s what I wanted to do, just get it out. … At the end, to be honest, all it came down to was just choosing to live, and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life. … Bill said to me, ‘I just need you around for the next 50 years, kid.’ He said, ‘I don’t care what you look like, I don’t care about the physical portion of this. I just need you around for the next 50 years. So, let’s just get you healthy.’ And that certainly helped me come to a decision. I couldn’t be more at peace. But it’s hard, and I still break down some nights … But I’m okay.” 

– E! News host Giuliana Rancic, appearing on “The Today Show,” explains her decision to undergo a double mastectomy after a lumpectomy failed to completely eradicate her breast cancer. While another lumpectomy and radiation treatment was an option, Rancic ultimately has decided to have both of her breasts removed because doing so reduces the chances of the breast cancer returning to one percent. Additionally, undergoing radiation treatment would have put off the couple’s plans to have children by another few years. I admire Rancic’s bravery and her willingness to share with the world each step she is taking to restore her health, and wish her well in her recovery. [People]

In Tuesday’s Lady News, we told you that former Frisky contributor Susannah Breslin has been diagnosed with breast cancer and linked to her Forbes Woman blog about the experience of getting her first mammogram and finding out the results. Susannah has received a lot of get well messages from friends and strangers alike as a result of being so open about her diagnosis; but she has also likely inspired other women to get mammograms, including women who are younger than 50, the recommended age for women to begin routine mammograms. 

One woman we know was inspired by Susannah’s diagnosis is her friend Xeni Jardin, editor at Boing Boing. Yesterday, Xeni tweeted throughout her mammogram appointment, giving readers a live, firsthand account of what to expect. As she waited for her results, Jardin expressed some fear of what she might find out. Sadly and shockingly, Xeni confirmed via Twitter last night that like Susannah, she too has breast cancer.
