Country Singer Reveals Upcoming Double Mastectomy
In a heartfelt announcement, country singer Morgan Wade has revealed that she is set to undergo a double mastectomy later this year due to carrying the BRCA gene. The “Wilder Days” artist, aged 28, shared the news exclusively with Page Six during London’s Highways Festival on May 20.
Testing positive for the BRCA gene, known to increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancers, has led Wade to make this life-altering decision. “I’m going really hard up until November so then November and December I have off to rest,” the singer told Page Six, reflecting her undeterred spirit in the face of this medical challenge.
The 28-year-old is a known fitness enthusiast and she isn’t shying away from expressing her regret about not being able to maintain her workout regimen. “I’m feeling fine, I’m just pissed I won’t be able to work out because I really like working out,” Wade said, showcasing the resilience and determination that has undoubtedly contributed to her rising fame.
The country singer also gave insight into her family’s history with the gene. “My mom had it, and my little cousin is going to get it, but I’ll be fine,” Wade reassured her fans, with the familial link emphasizing the genetic nature of BRCA.
However, this isn’t slowing down Morgan Wade’s musical ambitions. Hot on the heels of this personal revelation is the announcement of her second studio album, “Psychopath,” slated for release on August 25. This follows her critically acclaimed debut album “Reckless,” which topped Rolling Stone’s Best Country Albums list in 2021.
The singer-songwriter is eager for fans to hear her latest work, describing the album as a blend of unique sounds that reflect her current phase in life. “It’s about growing up and being older, and starting to feel like, ‘Is it time to settle down?’ I think you’ll see a lot of that on the record.”
In a time when Wade is confronted with significant personal challenges, her tenacity to continue creating music and connecting with her fans is truly inspiring. As she faces the realities of her medical journey, her resolve and dedication serve as an exemplar of strength and resilience for fans worldwide.
