RumorFix is sad to report that model Angie Everhart has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. However, luckily for the Sports Illustrated model, the prognosis is looking positive, so says her rep.
Everhart, who plans on living out her normal daily life as mother and model despite the diagnosis, tells the media via her rep:
“Word has been trickling out about [Angie’s] health. [Angie] wants to set the record straight by letting everyone know that it is true that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, however, the prognosis is very good.”
A rep for the 43-year-old adds, “She will undergo surgery tomorrow (Tuesday, May 14) and expects to be back to work and to mommy duties in a few weeks. The most important reason she is revealing this information is to encourage people to learn about cancer prevention, its signs and treatment immediately. [Angie] wants to thank everyone who has heard about it and expressed their support.”
You’re in our prayers, Angie!
