TONI BRAXTON'S BREAST CANCER SCARE
Toni Braxton recently admitted that she had a tumor removed from her breast during her "Dancing With The Stars" competition, according to Us Weekly. The lump was discovered during a routine checkup in August. The 42 year-old R&B singer explained to Us: "I was worried about what they would find. But it was benign. Getting the boot on the show was actually a blessing in disguise for me. We have family history. My grandmother on my dad's side died of breast cancer, and I have aunts on both sides that have breast cancer. I was very fortunate. Cancer knows no race, no creed, no color." [source: Us Weekly]
Toni has since focus her attention on her music career via the leaked track, "Melt." Her album with production by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins is due out in 2009. Toni also has her "DWTS" tour gig which Toni Braxton Net has the scoop on. Toni used her celebrity platform to raise awareness on Autism.
