: MediaTakeOut.com has learned that soul singer Toni Braxton is suffering from breast cancer.
According to the National Enquirer, the ‘Unbreak My Heart’ singer is undergoing radiation treatment and chemotherapy in secret.
Braxton reportedly learned that she was carrying the disease two months ago, but preferred to keep the news to herself. Doctors tell Braxton that she caught the disease early enough to beat it.
Braxton is not expected to continue with her ‘Toni Braxton: Revealed’ show at the Flamingo hotel and casino while undergoing treatment.
Thusfar, MediaTakeOut.com has learned that doctors have been pumping an iron concoction into her twice a week. This mixture is said to fight the fatigue caused by her chemotherapy.
“Toni is a fighter. She initially thought the worst, but doctors assured her the prognosis for her breast cancer is excellent. She still has moments when she gets upset and she may cry a little bit – but those moments don’t last long,” a family source was quoted as telling the National Enquirer.
