Duchess Of York Diagnosed With Breast Cancer

The Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson has undergone surgery after being diagnosed with breast cancer. 

A spokesperson for the 63-year-old said the Duchess was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer during a routine mammogram.

Ferguson is believed to have undergone a successful surgery and has since been discharged from King Edward VII’s Hospital in London to recover at home in Windsor.
