Jaclyn Smith Talks About Her Battle With Breast Cancer (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Oct 11th 2011 7:45PM
Jaclyn Smith faced down many foes on 'Charlie's Angels,' but none was more daunting than breast cancer. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Smith stopped by 'The Talk' (weekdays syndicated on CBS) to discuss not just her own battle with the disease, but also her late friend and co-star Farrah Fawcett's.

Smith remembered being there for Fawcett as she struggled and ultimately succumbed to cancer in 2009. "She never gave up. She just had this relentless drive to conquer the disease," she said.

Smith benefited from early detection, as her cancer was discovered in a yearly mammogram 9 and-a-half years ago. Still, she was shocked and devastated by the initial news. "The world stops and you hear 'cancer,' and that's a word I didn't even have in my vocabulary," Smith recalled. Fortunately, she was able to beat the disease after a lumpectomy and localized radiation.
