Roxy Jacenko Has Been Diagnosed With Breast Cancer
Just three weeks after her husband Oliver Curtis was jailed for insider trading, Roxy Jacenko has revealed she’s been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The 36-year-old is said to have found a lump in her left breast, which she has to have partially removed.
She spoke to The Daily Telegraph about her diagnosis. “The timing is extraordinary,” the star publicist said.
“What I have experienced in the past three weeks is the most shocking thing I have ever experienced. I don’t think there is anything that could shock me more now.”
She discovered the lump while showering last week and was forced to tell her husband over a six-minute prison call.
Doctors have delayed her Monday surgery as the cancer “is larger than first expected, so more testing is required.
“I reckon I am still in shock from the first hit,” Roxy said. On telling her husband, Roxy described how hard it was.
“It is not like he can pick up the phone any time, so when he does phone it is for a very short period of time,” Jacenko said, adding that he took the news badly.
Jacenko’s mother, Doreen Davis underwent a mastectomy a decade ago.
She said she hoped her diagnosis would encourage other women to get their breasts checked.
