Osbourne had Double Mastectomy
Ozzy Osbourne’s wife, Sharon, announced that she had recently had major surgery after finding out she had the gene that is predisposed to develop breast cancer. Last summer the wife of the famed rocker underwent a double mastectomy, which proves just how tough of a woman she is.
She is the current co-host of the talk show The Talk and the former outspoken judge on America’s Got Talent. Ozzy Osbourne’s wife has been a pillar of support for many years for her entire family as each one has gone through their own struggles that the public has watched or read about. However, in a recent magazine interview in the UK, Osbourne said she has had a few battles of her own to deal with recently.
The reality show matriarch, who is 60 years old, said in the interview that she had recently had a double mastectomy. She said that as soon as she was aware she had the gene that predisposed her for the cancer, she knew the odds were not stacked in her favor. Osbourne said she did not want to live each day with that kind of a shadow hanging over her.
Her rep confirmed that she had the surgery last summer. The news about her latest struggle comes just 10 years after Osbourne had a bout with colon cancer and only months after Jack, her son, revealed he suffers from Multiple Sclerosis.
She said she did not want to be pitied. She said for her it was not a difficult decision since it took away the weight she was and would have been carrying around for her life.
