Published Jan 07, 2008On Sunday, January 6 Canadian punk Bif Naked revealed that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer on George Stoumboulopoulos radio program The Strombo Show.
"It is a very surreal situation for Ian and I at this time. Two weeks ago I was doing a self-breast exam and discovered a lump, I went into my doctor for a checkup and he immediately sent me for tests, including a mammogram, which indicated a high possibility of cancer. From there things have gone at what seems like light speed: biopsy, blood tests, cancer clinic. Its been two weeks from being completely healthy to cancer patient with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy scheduled, said Bif.
The platinum-selling artist is currently working on the pre-production of two albums; one her sixth album that will be the follow up for Superbeautifulmonster and the other project is with Spanish death metal guitarist La Machina on Jakkarta.
"I have never been one to give up when an obstacle is placed in front of me. I am in the fight of my life and I'm lucky to have the support of my husband Ian, and many friends, and family members. With the help of my Bodog Music family I plan to continue working on these recording projects in between the cancer treatments and come out the other side with two great albums and a clean bill of health," explained Bif.
