Teresa Heinz Says She’s Fighting Breast Cancer

Current news updates, World current news
BOSTON -- Sen. John Kerry’s wife Teresa Heinz is being treated for breast cancer.

The 71-year-old said she was diagnosed in September after her annual mammogram. Heinz had lumpectomies on both breasts in October, and again at Massachusetts General Hospital in November.

Heinz is urging younger women to continue to get mammograms -- contrary to new guidelines that recommend less frequent testing for women fewer than 50.

Teresa Heinz said she will receive radiation treatments next month.
