The former Liberty X singer took to her Twitter.com page to assure fans she is Ok after the operation to remove her breasts.
“Thank u (you) for all your lovely tweets. It went well, but I’m obviously very sore & disorientated still. I have the best doctors & husband!” The thirty three year old had wanted the preventative surgery after learning she has the Brca2 gene, and is therefore up to eighty per cent more likely to develop breast cancer.
Last month (Oct12), she told British magazine Ok!,
“I really have no other option. I’m doing it to save my life. I don’t want to live waiting for cancer to strike. I’m more scared than I (have) ever been in my life. I don’t want to die young.”
Heaton is married to Irish Businessman Hugh Hanley and the are parents to little girl, called Faith Michelle Hanley. The little girl also has a fifty per cent chance to inherit the mutated gene that she has,for her father is a BRCA2 carrier
