Kathy Bates Fighting Breast Cancer for Past Two Months

Another movie star is fighting cancer and this time it is TV and film star Kathy Bates. A couple of weeks ago Bates announced on Twitter that she had been “in hiding” due to breast cancer issues over the course of the past couple of months. The Oscar award-winning actress, if you recall, had already had a bout with ovarian cancer earlier this year. Blair Stover has more details below.

“Hey All, sorry for the long silence. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 months ago & am recovering from a double mastectomy”, Bates tweeted just recently.

Even though she has been through a rough time over the course of the past year, she hasn’t lost her sense of humor. In fact she went on to tweet this response: “I don’t miss my breasts as much as I miss Harry’s Law. ;-) Thanks for all the sweet tweets. Y’all kept me going.”

Bates went on to explain the situation further in a formal statement to TODAY. She talked about how it wasn’t any secret that she was already a cancer survivor for nine years and even though she had already been dealing with issues of ovarian cancer again, very few people knew about the breast cancer. Bates decided, after careful consideration, to undergo the double mastectomy procedure. She went on to say that she will not need chemo or radiation.

She seems like the same old Oscar award-winning actress we all love as she stated she is ready to get back to work. We wish her all the best!
