PR dynamo and socialite, Roxy Jacenko has been diagnosed with breast cancer, weeks after her husband Oliver Curtis was sentenced to a minimum of one year in prison for insider trading.

The 36-year-old opened up about the diagnoses, explaining that she found a lump in her breast while showering 10 days ago – a lump doctors later discovered was bigger than first thought.

‘I don’t think there is anything that could shock me more now,’ she says, explaining that she broke the news to Oliver during a ‘six minute’ phone call made from lock-up at Parklea Correctional Centre.

Because of the cancer’s size, Roxy says surgery has been pushed back while doctors do more tests, and in the meantime, she’ll be comforted by her mother Doreen who battled the same cancer a decade ago.

The mother-of-two also revealed how her four-year-old daughter Pixie took the diagnosis.

‘She cried last night [Monday night] because I said I wasn’t going to come home for two nights because I would be in hospital.’

Been trying since 7.12pm. 9.41pm don’t know that I’m doing too well.
