Funny lady Jennifer Saunders, most famous perhaps for her role as PR agent Edina Monsoon in ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ and for her comedy routines with partner Dawn French in ‘French & Saunders’, has been fighting breast cancer for the past eight months, it is being reported.
A comedy icon in the United Kingom, English actress Jennifer reportedly began treatment for breast cancer after finding a lump in October 2009. The 52-year-old decided to keep her diagnosis private. According to the BBC, Jennifer has now completed treatment and is in remission.
According to reports, Jennifer underwent a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. A friend told the Daily Mail: “Jennifer’s treatment finished in June. She is very thankful that she has been given the all-clear and is feeling in very good spirits.”
News of the comedienne’s battle with breast cancer came as a shock to many as the news was only reported after Jennifer was seen public wearing a wig and a bandana. After speculation began to grow, Jennifer’s spokesperson confirmed the news. Jennifer does not, reportedly, want to discuss her battle with breast cancer in any public form.
