Sarah Ferguson almost skipped the appointment that revealed she had breast cancer.
Ferguson opened up about her recent breast cancer diagnosis in a pre-recorded episode of her podcast “Tea Talks with the Duchess & Sarah.”
“It was after bank holiday, and I live in this area — in the Windsor area — and it was a hot day, and I didn’t feel like going to London. It’s easy to put it off — ‘I’ll do it next week,'” Ferguson said. “My sister, who’s wonderful from Australia, I always normally do what she says because she gets so cranky. She said, ‘No — go. I need you to go. I need you to go.”
The Duchess’ sister, Jane, was actually “ringing [her] up about something else.”
Ferguson is now recovering after undergoing surgery.
“Sarah, Duchess of York was recently diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer detected at a routine mammogram screening,” Ferguson’s representatives confirmed with Fox News Digital on Sunday. “She was advised she needed to undergo surgery, which has taken place successfully.”
