She made her statement on Instagram in October 2021. She said:
“Is it all pretty? NO but it’s truthful and my hope in sharing is that we all become more educated, more familiar with what cἀncer looks like, I hope I encourage people to get mammograms, to get regular checkups, to cut thru the fear and face whatever might be in front of you.”
