Jon Gosselin‘s sweetheart of 7 years Colleen Conrad just recently shared that she’s battling breast cancer.
The previous Jon & Kate Plus 8 star’s partner required to Instagram to reveal that she was detected after embracing a mammogram on April 15.
“I had put it off for almost 2 1/2 years due to lack of time and Covid and later got a call that a mass was found in my right breast,” she captioned her Aug. 7 Instagram post. “Everything after that happened so fast. Then on 4/21, I got the call that is confirmed it was cancer. Stage 2, triple-negative breast cancer. I was BRCA1 and 2 negative. Everything seemed so surreal.”
Colleen stated she went through a single mastectomy on her ideal breast on July 14, followed by a DIEP Flap treatment on July 30.
“I feel good,” she continued. “The DIEP flap was a personal choice for me . I am very happy with the outcome but I also had amazing surgeons at Penn Medicine in Philadelphia.”
