Crow Has Breast Cancer

Sheryl Crow underwent surgery for breast cancer on Wednesday, she confirmed via her website. According to the site, Crow's doctors call her prognosis "excellent"; she will receive radiation therapy treatment as a precaution.

In a statement, Crow's former fiancé, Lance Armstrong, said, "I was devastated to hear this news. Once again I'm reminded of just how pervasive this illness is as it has now touched someone I love deeply." The cycling champion continued, "Based on my contact in recent days with Sheryl, her doctor, and her family, I am confident that she will have a full and complete recovery and the world will be a better place for it. And to all of her fans and friends out there, please keep Sheryl in your thoughts and prayers yet know that I have never known a stronger woman in my life."

Crow underwent surgery in Los Angeles in a procedure she called "minimally invasive." On her website, she said, "I am joining the more than 200,000 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. We are a testament to the importance of early detection and new treatments."

She also said she would have to postpone her North American tour, which was scheduled for March and April. In addition, she suggested visitors contact the Lance Armstrong Foundation's LIVESTRONG SurvivorCare to help other cancer survivors.

2 This is a weird sequence of events, her breaking up with the undisputed king of cancer survivors, then only two months later learning of her own tumor. Kinda scary, really.
