Matthew Knowles, the father of Beyonce’ and Solange, shares with the public that he is battling breast cancer.
Knowles revealed his diagnosis on Good Morning America saying that he began to notice blood on his bed sheets, causing him to get checked out. He says that he is hopeful that sharing his story will encourage other men to go out and get checked as well.
“Of all the things I could get, why would I get this?” he said to Good Morning America co-anchor Michael Strahan. “From a man’s perspective, I’m thinking, ‘Why me?’”
He continues, “The rest of my life I have to be very much aware and conscious and do all of the early detection,” he said. Knowles assures us that his family has been by his side the whole way and that they have been tested as well.
