Cynthia Nixon's mother survived breast cancer when the actress was 12. Then, in 2006, Nixon received her own diagnosis. She immediately underwent a lumpectomy and radiation treatment. Nixon is now the spokesperson for the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Foundation, saying, "I want them [women] most to hear me saying that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. So the only thing to really be afraid of is if you don't go get your mammograms, because there's some part of you that doesn't want to know, and that's the thing that's going to trip you up."
