Children's Author Judy Blume Reveals her Battle with Breast Cancer

Popular children's author Judy Blume announced on her blog on Wednesday that she was diagnosed with breast cancer over the summer, had a mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgery in late July, reports the Associated Press.

The 74-year-old author wrote that she walks a couple of miles each morning and eats out at night.

Blume wrote that her cancer wasn't detected by a mammogram or by a normal physical exam because she has thick breast tissue.

For women in similar situations, Blume suggested that they get a sonogram.
