Carly Simon

Simon underwent a mastectomy, chemotherapy, and reconstructive surgery for breast cancer  during 1997 and 1998. There had been a lump in her breast for several years before then, but her doctors had advised her against surgery.  Simon's surgery came at the same time as the death of her long-time friend Linda McCartney, who had also struggled with breast cancer.
