Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon Beat Cancer

Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon Beat Cancer

Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon revealed on Good Morning America on Tuesday that she had breast cancer two years ago.

Thankfully the cancer was successfully removed and after undergoing therapy, Nixon is fully recovered.

“I didn’t want to make it public while I was going through it”, said Nixon.

The 42-year old actress’ mom overcame two bouts of cancer. “As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, knowing my personal risk made me more aware and more empowered when I faced my own diagnosis,” Nixon said.

  • eddie jones

    i’ve never watched this show, but all are the women as ugly as this, we know how fugly sjp is, but another one? The only sex in the city girls like this get are from themselves.

  • Molly

    Well, thats wonderful. Send some love and prayers.

  • Okay?

    Wow I’m glad she’s doing better. Maybe that’s the reason the film didn’t film years earlier. Many fans were wondering what was the holdup. Sometimes battling an illness away from the spotlight can help much more than everyone knowing and sending you well wishes, support, et…

    I’m looking forward to Sex and the City.

  • Trish

    I’m glad to hear that’s doing good.

    i don’t see why so many people dislike her. i think she’s a beautiful person, and no beautiful doesn’t necessarily mean i think she’s attractive (however i do in fact think she’s attractive), it more so means that i think she has a sweet personality and i think it’s inspirational that she beat breast cancer.

  • Rae

    Congratulations to her. I’m glad she’s doing well.

    I don’t think she’s beautiful but I do think she’s very attractive and pretty.

  • danny

    I didn’t know she had the breast cancer… It’s terrible for every woman, not only for such beautiful and sexy as Cynthia. I wish her to recover her health as soon as possible.
