Author Judy Blume is recovering from breast cancer surgery. Blume, 74, had the surgery in June, six weeks after she was diagnosed.  On her website, Judyblume.com, she said that she was a shocked because she has no family history of the cancer.

“There’s no breast cancer in my family (recent extensive genetic testing shows no genetic connection). I haven’t eaten red meat in more than 30 years. I’ve never smoked, I exercise every day, forget alcohol – it’s bad for my reflux – I’ve been the same weight my whole adult life. How is this possible? Well, guess what – it’s possible.”

Blume is recovering from the sugary in New York. She says that she is grateful for the support of her husband and a “network of amazing women” that have dealt with the disease.

“Medical diagnoses can leave you feeling alone and scared. When it comes to breast cancer you’re not alone, and scary though it is, there’s a network of amazing women to help you through it.”

Blume is the author of many books, including “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” and the Fudge books.
