Singer Taylor Dayne Gets Candid About Her Harrowing Experience With Cancer


Taylor Dayne revealed to “Good Morning America” that she was diagnosed with colon cancer in July after doctors found a polyp during her annual colonoscopy. “Life is precious,” she told the outlet. Dayne confessed she was devastated at the news and her mind immediately went blank. “He never even said the stage,” she explained. However, in that moment, Dayne found solace in knowing she was on top of her regular checkups. “All I could do is [think], ‘Okay, five months ago, I know there was nothing. So this is early detection.” 

According to the Colon Cancer Coalition, colon cancer “is most common among people aged 50 and older but can occur in patients as young as teenagers.” Get screened regularly can provide a greater chance for a cure. The “I’ll Always Love You” singer ultimately had surgery to get rid of the aggressive cancer and in the process doctors had to cut off 10 inches of her colon. 

Although the musician’s procedure went well, she was required to be hospitalized for over two weeks after she suffering several difficulties after surgery. “I felt like I was four years old again back in the hospital, basically locked inside my own body without a voice,” Dayne told “Good Morning America.” “This has challenged me mentally, emotionally.” Dayne is now a big advocate for getting routine checkups. “Find the doctor that will tell you the truth,” she added. “Be a warrior for yourself.”
