The Home Edit’s Clea Shearer is cancer free nine months after stage 2 mammary carcinoma diagnosis

The Home Edit co-founder Clea Shearer discussed how it felt to be officially cancer free nine months after she was diagnosed with stage 2 mammary carcinoma.

‘It was extremely emotional. I spent the whole day just living with that emotion,’ the 40-year-old LA native said in a sneak peek of this Friday’s episode of Tamron Hall.

‘I had a friend warn me – she’s a few weeks ahead of me — she said, “Just so you know, when you reach the end of treatment, you’re going to feel a little bit like you’re in the middle of the earth. Because all of the thoughts that you had day in and day out, you don’t have to have them anymore. You don’t have be at doctors everyday. You don’t have to do all that, so you’re going to feel a little helpless.”

‘I had a little bit of that feeling waking up, it’s a very weird feeling. You grow, almost, attached to the process that you’re in and committed to this process…You know, it’s like all of a sudden you’ve devoted your life to getting through something.’

Clea then turned to her co-founder Joanna Teplin and said: ‘I called Joanna, and I was like, “Can we do something? Can you come pick me up?”‘

Shearer (born Driscoll) discovered a lump in her breast in late February, she was diagnosed with two aggressive 1cm tumors on March 8, and underwent a bilateral mastectomy on April 8.

Since the cancer had made it’s way into the Best Friend Energy podcaster’s lymph nodes, she then underwent eight weeks of AC chemo therapy, 12 weeks of Taxol chemo therapy, and two months of radiation (while sick with COVID-19).

Clea publicly announced her cancer-free status with an Instagram post on November 22 following her final radiation treatment at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville.

During her treatment, Shearer spent a lot of quality time with her two children – daughter Stella Blue, 11; and son Sutton Grey, 8 – and her husband of 13 years, photographer John Shearer.

The NY Times best-selling author – whose Cali-based mother moved in with her family – wrote: ‘It’s a time in my life I will treasure, even though it was extremely difficult for all of us…It’s crazy to say this, but we had the most special time?’

Clea received congratulatory comments from her celeb pals Jennifer Love Hewitt, Maren Morris, Adam Rippon, Claire Holt, Miranda Lambert, Karen Elson, Selma Blair, and Olivia Munn.
