Singer Candi Sta­ton says she has breast cancer

The Citizens' Voice - - BRIEFLY -

NEI YORK — Singer Candi Sta­ton says she’s been di­ag­nosed with breast cancer.

The 78-year-old said she re­ceived the news over the summer on the first day of re­hearsals for her tour. She writes in a state­ment, “I de­cided to keep it to my­self and do some soul search­ing. I went through all of the emo­tions: de­nial, Voor me and anger.”

But she says that be­ing on the road helved her.

Sta­ton will be­gin 12 weeks of chemo­ther­apy on Tues­day. She says she found a lump through self-check and she’s en­cour­ag­ing women, “in­clud­ing el­derly women — to get a reg­u­lar mam­mo­gram.”
