Which Celebs Have Survived Breast Cancer?

Sheryl Crow 1 of 11

In February 2006, singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow underwent surgery and radiation therapy treatments for breast cancer, which were ultimately successful. News of her diagnosis came shortly after her breakup with cyclist Lance Armstrong, and she said, "It was a really personal blow, because I was newly out of a relationship and that made it more difficult to even fathom that I could be diagnosed with cancer."

She said that a big part of getting through the diagnosis came from a friend's advice: "This great friend told me one of the gateways to awakening is to allow yourself to experience your emotions. [...] My attitude was to grieve when I felt like grieving, be afraid when I felt like being afraid, and be angry when I felt like being angry."
