Morgan Wade has revealed that she plans to undergo a double mastectomy in November after testing positive for a cancerous gene.
The 28-year-old country star told Page Six that she had tested positive for the RAD51D gene — a mutation in one of the breast cancer genes.
The RAD51D gene typically helps prevent cancers, but a mutation in this gene causes it to stop working properly.
“I had the RAD51D gene, it’s a breast cancer gene so I’m having a double mastectomy in November,” she told Page Six at London’s Highways Festival. “I’m going really hard up until November so then November and December I have off to rest.”
“I’m feeling fine,” Wade said, adding that the only thing that worries her is that she won’t be able to work out, a routine that she really likes and follows “7 days a week.”
