In a recent interview with Dr. Phil, award-winning actress Kathy Bates bravely shared her,

battle with cancer, highlighting the struggles faced even by Hollywood stars. Despite her fame, Bates found herself confronting cancer twice, undergoing a silent ordeal.

First diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2003, Bates underwent surgeries and chemotherapy in secrecy, confiding in only a select few. She emerged victorious but faced another blow when she received a breast cancer diagnosis years later.

Bates, known for her determination, opted for a double mastectomy to combat the disease. Even amidst adversity, she maintained her humor, joking about her situation and thanking fans for their support.
