Floor Jansen Announces She’s “Cancer Free”


Less than a month after announcing she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Nightwish singer Floor Jansen took to social media today to announce that she’d “cancer free” and in good health.

“Great news! I am cancer free. The surgery took everything cancerous out and it hasn’t spread! I’ll get local radiation therapy in February to make sure everything stays out.

“I’m getting my energy back after the surgery and feel a huge relief to know it was successful! I’m not back to a 100% but I have no doubt the shows will give me the power push I need to rock with all of you on the upcoming European tour.

“Thank you for your amazing support and well wishes.”

We knew late last month that Jansen had gone under the knife to have a cancerous growth removed from her body before it spread to other more important areas. At the time, she said the surgery was successful, but doctors had to wait to see if all of the cancer had been excised from her body. If they didn’t get all of it, there would be a great chance that it would show back up again. That didn’t happen, however, so her doctors have given her the green light to proceed with things as normal.

Which is a good thing, since Nightwish have already been confirmed for the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise, and has an European tour scheduled.

So from everyone here at MetalSucks, congrats on beating cancer, Floor!
