So You Think You Can Dance former and future judge, Mary Murphy is thrilled to announce to Life & Style exclusively that she is now cancer free! We didn’t even know she had cancer, did you? Keep reading to find out what kind of cancer, and what her future looks like now.
Three years ago, (yes three!) Mary Murphy was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. However she admits she was too scared to get it taken care of. They told her that she may not talk again and the thought of not hearing herself laugh was unimaginable. Finally on December 15, 2010, Mary Murphy went under the knife and had her tumor removed. Just recently she was told by her doctor that she is now cancer free.
“I just wanted to kiss my doctor! I definitely feel like there’s an angel on my shoulder. I feel like somebody’s looking out for me.” Mary told Life & Style.
Today Mary is preparing for audition season of So You Think You Can Dance since she is returning to the show this summer. She is also working on getting back her famous scream that some love, and others can’t stand. “I’ve always had a pretty good attitude, but now I don’t take things for granted as much,” Mary tells Life & Style. “I’ve had a major roller coaster of a life, for sure. But my roller coaster keeps going up and down. I just want to thank all my friends and family and my fans.”
As for us? We are glad she is healthy and can’t wait to see her on TV again! Tell us what you think!
