Amber Marchese of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” has breast cancer for the second time. Earlier this week, the reality TV star had surgery to remove a cancerous lump she discovered a few weeks ago. It is Marchese’s second such battle. Six years ago, Marchese was diagnosed with beast cancer and had a double mastectomy.

The TV personality revealed the news about her new health crisis on social media with a long post explaining her situation. Marchese wrote, “My last few weeks have been hell, as you can imagine. But, can you really? With this news I traveled to the Bahamas with my beautiful family and tons of close friends, but the only thing on my mind was that lump and my uncertain future. I kept a smile on my face in front of everyone and cried in private.”

Earlier this week, before her surgery and biopsy, when Marchese did not yet know whether the growth was cancerous, she wrote, “As comforting as the statistics should be to me, I still have spent the last couple of weeks in complete anxiety, fear, and stress. I was swept right back into the agony one faces when they could possibly face death.”

She added, “I am in the best physical condition of my life, lifting weights and I sometimes feel like supermom, but today I stand before you all, frightened. I am not ashamed or afraid to admit it, but what I can say to you all is I have peace. God willing, I can put this all behind me and simply be mom again, however in the meantime I will continue to strengthen my faith and show my love to all.” Gossip Cop wishes Marchese a swift return to good health.
