‘I just want this to be the last time I go through this. Cancer runs through my family, so it’s a scary thing both for me and Iman,’ she said of her husband.

She added the first thing she thought of after the surgery are her two kids with Shumpert, five-year-old Junie and 11-month-old Rue. 

‘When will I be able to hold my babies again?’ Teyana asked her doctor, who told her to wait at least six weeks until she can lift her kids after the surgery on her chest and under-arms.
