It’s only been two days since Amber Marchese underwent a partial mastectomy to remove a cancerous lump found in her breast, but the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is more resolved than ever to beat breast cancer for the second time.
Sharing a picture taken flexing in the gym one day before her surgery, Amber writes “This is a day before my surgery. I took it because I am going to crush cancer with my bicep and of course with my strong will and faith in God.”
Late last month Amber found the tumor while relaxing at home. Since it was confirmed as cancerous, the RHONJ star says she’s turned to her faith and her fans; something that her husband Jim says has been very helpful during this time.
"She's really appreciative of everyone's thoughts and prayers," he says. "She'll be back on her feet in a few days. She's going to keep going and keep fighting.”
