Terra Jolé Doesn’t Have Cancer: “It Was an Overwhelming Feeling of Freedom”
Terra Jolé is in the clear!
It was obviously a shock for the mother of two, her family, and her friends, but we have good news to report — she’s cancer free!
“There is nothing more nerve-racking than waiting for your breast cancer results. All you can really do is stay positive and keep your mind busy,” she told People in a statement.
“I found myself pushing the family out to water parks and other day adventures. Things that I knew would be harder to do if facing an uphill cancer battle.”
Of course the Dancing With the Stars alum immediately felt relief when she heard the good news.
“When I first found out I was cancer free it was an overwhelming feeling of freedom. No longer facing what was to come and free to no longer stress on the what ifs,” she revealed.
“My husband Joe stayed strong, but after finding out I was cancer free really shared with me how scared he was about the possibility.”
Since the scare, the 36-year-old is using her story to encourage other women to listen to their bodies.
“This process has taught me that just because you’re not 40 yet doesn’t mean you need to take your breast lightly,” she continued.
“If you feel or see anything out of the ordinary, have it checked by a professional.”
We’re so happy to hear the good news!
