Jill has bounced back nicely after battling breast cancer for five years. In 2017 she told People a lump was spotted in a sonogram causing her to have to back-to-back surgeries.

Later the drug Tamoxifen made her gain weight.

In October 2012 Goodacre had a routine annual mammogram. The results were fine. But then she was told to get a sonogram as well because she had ‘dense breasts.’

During the sonogram ‘something was detected’ and Jill was asked to undergo a biopsy.

The results were hard to hear: the bikini model had Stage 1 invasive ductal carcinoma.

‘I was scared I was going to lose her, absolutely. I wasn’t going to let her see that, but I was. I know from losing my mom that the worst can happen. She’s my best friend, and I really don’t know what I would do without her,’ said the crooner.
