Brenda Song: My Mom is a Cancer Survivor

Brenda Song: My Mom is a Cancer Survivor

Brenda Song opens up in the April/May 2009 issue of Scholastic Choices about her mother’s battle with breast cancer.

The 21-year-old actress shared with the magazine about learning about breast cancer, not giving up on her mom and making others aware of the disease. Check it:

On not giving up on her mother: “It was my mom’s strong will that I think my family fed off of. I truly couldn’t take my mom for granted, nor would I ever again. What happened really was a blessing in disguise.”

On learning all she could about breast cancer: “I felt completely hopeless and helpless. It’s really important to learn about the disease. If I knew what was going on, I could talk to my mom about it.”

On helping others: “We can’t help what’s going to happen in life or what life is going to throw at us. But we can control what decisions we make.”

    That’s horrible to deal with but good that her mom is a survivor.

    Cancer is such a horrible thing to go through. I talk from experience. I’m glad her mum beat cancer. No one deserves to go through it.

    I love Brenda, she is gorgeous, beautiful and very strong. Her mom survived it and Queen B helped her. 2005-07 was a really tough time for her, 2007 was the toughest year that is why she didnt go around Hollywood promoting herself.
