I know they are really doing great things to get the cancer before it gets out of hand and the survival rate is very high, but still.........she's had a **** year, no doubt.

    Prayers for Sheryl....

    I am so sorry to hear of this. I would be wonderful if Sheryl had strong support through this ordeal, but from the timing of it, it was probably suspected for a month, or two.

    From her website (very cool website, by the way):

    http://sherylcrow.com/main/

    “Approximately 1 in 7 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and more than 2 million American are living with breast cancer today. I am joining the more than 200,000 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.

    We are a testament to the importance of early detection and new treatments. I encourage all women everywhere to advocate for themselves and for their future – see your doctor and be proactive about your health.

    More than 10 million Americans are living with cancer, and they demonstrate the ever-increasing possibility of living beyond cancer. I am inspired by the brave women who have faced this battle before me and grateful for the
    support of family and friends.”

    Looks like she opted (I'm sure on good advice) for the lumpectomy.

    My mother had breast cancer at 72 - she went for the masectomy. A couple of months after that she got it in the other breast so she had that removed too. No radiation, nothing except for tamoxifen for 5 yrs. She had breast implants and is now 83 and still cancer free.

    That is so sad michelle. 47 is so young. I'm sure your friend is keeping close watch as this puts her at greater risk.

    Maybe Lance found it - hehe (bad joke). Truthfully, he could have. It sounds like it was found early. She's lucky if so. Also I guess with the lumpectomies they do now there is not so much disfigurement. That is great for a younger woman.

    My mother had it at age 68, mastectomy, it came back but they nuked it. Somehow she's one of the ones who made it, age 81.

    My husband says that in Cheryl's case they radiate the rest of the breast to nuke any cell that might have spread.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cyclist Lance Armstrong says he was
    devastated to learn that his former fiancee, Sheryl Crow, has been
    diagnosed with breast cancer.
    The couple announced earlier this month they were splitting up.
    Crow's publicist says the singer-songwriter had surgery in Los
    Angeles on Wednesday and is recovering without complications. Her
    prognosis is said to be excellent.
    In a statement posted on her Web site, Crow calls the surgery
    "minimally invasive" and says that she will be undergoing
    radiation treatment as a precaution. Her concert tour has been
    postponed.
    Armstrong, who is a survivor of testicular cancer, says in a
    statement that the illness has touched somone he deeply loves. He's
    calling for fans to pray for Crow.

    My grandma died of breast cancer. They removed the breast but it spread anyway. She battled on for 5 years before it took her life. It was a horrible illness I wouldnt wish on anyone. Prayers to Cheryl.
