OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Grammy Award-wining artist Sheryl Crow performed a benefit concert Saturday at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kan.
This summer celebration event benefits “ Back in the Swing ,” an organization that empowers breast cancer survivors with nutrition, health and wellness information.
41 Action News’ Cynthia Newsome got an exclusive interview with the music star. Because Cynthia is also a breast cancer survivor, the pair had an instant connection.
Crow talked about how breast cancer changes life forever for survivors.
“For me, I realized through the process of doing radiation, the only person who could go through radiation was me,” Crow said in the interview. “My exercise of putting everybody above myself, I put myself at the bottom of the list isn’t going to work for me any more.”
Crow was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006.
