Model and Singer Joanne Borgella Has Cancer

Recently, American Idol’s Joanne Borgella announced on her Facebook page that she is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. In a video she posted, she said, “It’s been crazy. It’s very unexpected. I’m 31 years old. I go to the doctor — I’ve gotten checkups,” she stated. “It’s a rare case because it has spread to my chest.” Borgella did not say which type of cancer she has. —Kellee Terrell
