Former ‘Liberty X‘ singer and Mum to baby Faith, Michelle Heaton, has undergone a double mastectomy today. She made the decision to have both breasts removed after a health scare earlier this year, where a doctor told her that she had the mutated ‘BRCA2‘ gene, which increases your chance by 80% of getting breast cancer in later life.
During the difficult day, she tweeted about her condition: “Thank you so much for your well wishes. Sorry I can’t get back to you all, though I have read everyone. On way to hospital now. Love you all, Michelle. Thank you for all your lovely tweets. It went well, but I’m obviously very sore & disorientated still. I have the best doctors & husband ever.”
