Sad news. Amber Marchese is preparing for battle. TMZ is reporting that her husband, Jim Marchese is confirming that the lump that was surgically removed earlier this week was tested and has been revealed as cancerous. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has courageously fought back from breast cancer before. She was diagnosed six years ago, and underwent treatment which included a double mastectomy.
Amber is reportedly and understandably frightened, but plans to tackle treatment with the tenacious spirit that was revealed to viewers during her time on the Bravo show, where she bravely described her first experience with this terrible disease. Amber and Jim have honestly shared about the scary discovery and subsequent lumpectomy, with Amber keeping her followers updated via her Facebook account, through an honest and vulnerable pre-surgery post, as well as a post surgery video.
We at All About the Tea are pulling for you Amber, and ask all of our readers to support Amber and her family through well wishes and prayer during this challenging time.
UPDATE: Jim Marchese has reached to All About the Tea and asserts he did not confirm the TMZ story…stay tuned for further details.
