Suzanne Somers explains how her breast cancer was a blessing in disguise
In a new interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Suzanne Somers explains the shock she received after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001, and how she decided not to do chemotherapy. She also talks about her miraculous breast reconstruction surgery in 2011 which used her own stem cells to regrow her breast - instead of an implant. Nearly 17 years later, Somers sees her brush with cancer as a veiled gift. It forced her to be proactive about her health and contributed to her becoming the wellness guru she is today.
