Jillian Barberie didn’t need a second opinion before she sprung into action against breast cancer, revealing that she immediately made the decision to remove her breasts before any other tests were done.
The former “Good Day L.A.” star called in to the “Hollywood Pipeline Podcast” with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn to discuss her health journey following her double mastectomy.
Barberie says she made her appointment for a double mastectomy very soon after hearing the word “cancer.” She says her breasts “have served me well,” adding that they’re “beautiful … they were in men’s magazines.”
She says the decision was quick and easy, “tits chopped off, lymph nodes taken out.” Barberie says she had her breasts reconstructed to a similar size, but now has no nipples and refers to herself as “robo-tits.”
Barberie will soon start radiation and chemotherapy as she continues treatment, and will be updating fans along the way as she continues her battle.
