Angie Everhart

Model-turned-actress Angie Everhart is battling cancer.

The 43 year old, who was once engaged to actor Joe Pesci, has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and will undergo surgery on Tuesday (14May13).

Everhart's publicist tells U.S. news show Extra, "Word has been trickling out about supermodel/actress Angie Everhart's health. She wants to set the record straight by letting everyone know that it is true that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, however, the prognosis is very good.

"She will undergo surgery tomorrow and expects to be back to work and to mommy duties in a few weeks.

"The most important reason she is revealing this information is to encourage people to learn about cancer prevention, its signs and treatment immediately."
