The actress Fran Drescher, who from 1993 to 1999 played the famous nanny in the hit series “a nanny from hell”, returned to the great trials of her life which she had to face.
The actress, who was raped at gunpoint during a 1985 home invasion, told Page Six she thought her immune system was weakened because she hadn’t been followed after this rape and that this attack was one of the reasons why she ended up with cancer in 2000.
The actress believes the stress and trauma of the rape were factors that led to her cancer diagnosis 15 years later.
“I went through trauma as a rape victim and for years I didn’t really understand how it affected me emotionally, I just got on with my life,” she detailed during the launch of the promotion of her new book “N is for The Nanny”.
“I think it’s no coincidence that I ended up with gynecological cancer,” says the star. The actress, who was diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2000 and underwent an immediate radical hysterectomy after two years of misdiagnoses, also explains that toxic exposure is also part of her cancer.
“Americans are in a cycle of toxic exposure, chronic disease and addiction,” esteem the star. And to add: “We need to ‘break the chains’ and ‘really start looking at what weakens our immune system, why our body reacts and why there are so many chronic diseases.’
