NEW YORK POST – Chrissy Turner will undergo a mastectomy next week — and she’s only 8 years old.
The Utah native was diagnosed this month with an extremely rare breast cancer, accounting for just 1 percent of all breast cancer cases.
“I was kind of scared to figure out what it was,” she said Tuesday morning on “Good Morning America.”
Fortunately, despite the rarity of the cancer — secretory breast carcinoma — her prognosis is good.
“It is very treatable,” said Dr. Brian Bucher, Chrissy’s physician at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.
She is scheduled to have surgery next week.
