Janice Dickinson Reveals She Has Breast Cancer

The world’s first known supermodel, Janice Dickinson revealed that she has breast cancer in an emotional interview with the Daily Mail. Janice first heard the news after a routine check- up earlier this month,  her Doctor found a small lump in her right breast that was the size of a pea and said it didn’t “feel right.”

The reality T.V star opened up about her reaction to the news.

“It’s still quite shocking,” she said in the interview while also experiencing a feeling that she has never embraced before this moment: fear.

“Today, I got very scared. I just got scared, and it hit me, but I am not going to let that define me, the fear.”

Luckily, Janice has the support of her two children, Savannah and Nathan, as well as her fiancé, Dr. Robert Gerner. The former America’s Next Top Model judge also shared that she was out shopping with Savannah when she officially received the news, and she knew that she “had to be brave and strong.”

Of course, like the Janice we all know and love, she made it clear that she is indeed a survivor.

“I’m going to get through this, oh you betcha, kiddo, and I’ll be just fine. This is not a pity party. I’m Janice Dickinson, and I’m going to stick around for a long, long time.”

Janice also pointed out one of the main reasons she felt the need to be honest and open about her diagnosis.

“I’m doing this for women, all ethnicities, and all ages to tell my truth. If I’m not inspiring millions of women right now, well then, I’m sorry you didn’t get my message.”
