Tina Knowles Lawson is sure that her ex-husband Mathew Knowles will come out on top after he recently revealed his battle with breast cancer.
The father of Beyoncé and Solange opened up about his stage 1A diagnosis and the ways in which men can also be predisposed to breast cancer in an interview with Good Morning America.
“Thank God he [discovered] it very early on, and he is going to be fine. I’m [calling] it,” his ex-wife told ET.
The couple were married for over thirty years before divorcing in 2011. They are now each happily remarried.
After undergoing surgery last July, Mathew said he is now “doing very well.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 245,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women and 2,200 in men each year in the United States.
“The key to this is early detection,” Knowles said, during his appearance which also occurred during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “There’s no excuse for it. We’ll go get a new pair of shoes. Well, why not an important test you can go and get that could save your life? Equally important, your children’s lives.”
