“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Judge revealed she has been diagnosed with skin cancer in an emotional post to fans on Sunday, Aug. 27.
Sharing a selfie that showed off her toned physique in a pair of short shorts, the Bravo-lebrity pointed out a small mole on her buttocks.
“I work out ? hard for this Booty. I was planning on competing again in November at 50 years old, but I’m not sure that’s happening ? now. it looks like God has a different plan for me. Im showing you this picture because this is what melanoma looks like,” she wrote. “I don’t want sympathy, I want you to save YOUR ass and get your skin checked . This was just a small black flat freckle…. I had no idea! Ill be fine because my faith is strong and my Ass ain’t bad either?.”
“Thank you @amyhlitchfield ❤️. I’ve been a little sad , worried and pissed off. But we caught it early and that makes me happy ? Happy birthday to me. #saveyourass birthday party in Cabo not sounding like a good idea now ? #awareness.#skincheck.”
Judge, who turns 50 on Sept. 2, was flooded with well wishes from fans who shared similar stories.
“Thanks for sharing! Praying for healing!” fan @alexaville wrote.
User @amye1120 added, “Same thing happened to me it was on my back. I waited a year to have it checked I had surgery they removed it all and I am cancer free. … We don’t realize the effects of it as a kid and what it may do when we are older. I am so glad you caught it early and praying you are ok!!!!”
