After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Floor singer of Nightwish underwent surgery to remove the tumor.
She posted a picture with her daughter the next day saying: ” The tumor removal surgery went well without any surprises. I’m recovering well and should be up and about soon. It will take a few weeks to know what the findings are regarding the tumor and lymph node that will be tested.
I’ll keep you posted”
She also encouraged girls to always get checked cause it saved her life: “Had I not gone there, the tumor would have gone undetected. In a year from now this could have grown much bigger. The thought of that makes me share this story with you. A mammogram is lifesaving! It’s uncomfortable and you might think that you won’t have something in your breasts anyway but GO! And for the men reading this: remind your wife, girlfriend, mother, sister to go and get checked. Even without the luxury I as a western woman experience with free mammogram checkups: GO! Luckily, there are many organizations that offer information about self-detection if you do not have access or funds for a mammogram.
If I might inspire you to take good care of yourself, then something good will come out of this cancer diagnosis.”
3 weeks later the singer updated us with great news! she’s now officially cancer free!
she posted on insta: “Great news! I am cancer free The surgery took everything cancerous out and it hasn’t spread! I’ll get local radiation therapy in February to make sure everything stays out.
I’m getting my energy back after the surgery and feel a huge relief to know it was successful! I’m not back to a 100% but I have no doubt the shows will give me the power push I need to rock with all of you on the upcoming European tour
Thank you for your amazing support and well wishes “
Keep it heavy guys and stay safe! \m/
