Bruce Jenner Confirms Skin Cancer Diagnosis, Pushes for Sunscreen Use

by at . Comments

Following his second procedure of the last two years to remove a growth from his face, Bruce Jenner has issued a statement in regard to his health.

Speaking to E! News, the First Father of Reality Television acknowledged he’s suffering from “basal cell carcinoma" and underwent "Mohs surgery" this week to take care of the issue.

“I have been struggling with this for several years and appreciate all of the support and prayers while I continue to fight the battle against skin cancer,” Jenner said, adding a life lesson and passing along advice:

“This has taught me to be extra vigilant when out in the sun and I encourage others to get regular checkups and always wear sunscreen.”

Well put, BJ. Let's hope all fans take note and let's also hope daughter Kim Kardashian is serious about getting out of the public eye.
