Singer Bif Naked has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. The star - real name Beth Torbert - announced the news of her condition on Sunday (06Jan08) on a live radio show in her native Canada. She says, "I have never been one to give up when an obstacle is placed in front of me. "I am in the fight of my life and I'm lucky to have the support of my husband Ian, and many friends, and family members. I'm glad it's me and not my mom. I'm glad it's me and not my sister; I'm glad it's me and not any of my friends. I am ready for the fight." The 36-year-old discovered a lump in her breast shortly before Christmas (07) and will undergo surgery this week (begs07Jan08), followed by a course of chemotherapy. Torbert's manager Peter Karroll says, "It's serious enough for (doctors) to escalate all of their medical treatments. It's not the worst and it's not the easiest (level of cancer). "It's stage two in that she's getting some extensive surgery, a lumpectomy, and they're going into her lymph nodes in one arm."
