Cynthia Nixon surviving Breast Cancer

By on Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

Cynthia Nixon said, “I didn’t want paparazzi at the hospital while I was going through this,” said Nixon, who said that one of the few people she shared the news with was partner Christine Marinoni.   She was diagnosed about a year and a half ago.

The 42-year-old said that she felt a diagnosis of breast cancer was likely as her mother had suffered from the disease.

“I felt scared. I thought, ‘Oh, I don’t want this to be happening’. I was very cognisant of if it’s going to happen, this is the best way for it to happen, that it’s found so early and we can just get right on it,” said Nixon.
