Lisa Vidal Opens Up About Her Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Loni Love: What was the diagnosis?

Lisa Vidal: My diagnosis was invasive ductal carcinoma. And here’s the thing. It’s so crazy because… my mammogram showed nothing.

Adrienne Bailon: See, that’s the scary part!

Lisa: So, the reason I really wanted to talk about this. Not only to share the experience, but to also say early diagnosis is so crucial. And mammograms don’t always find it. Nothing against mammograms, but the ultra sound is what kinda saved my life. Because… um they found it so early and mammograms like a snowstorm and you’re trying to find the snowflake. And you don’t see it until it’s much worse, and so that why I really kind of want to advocate for women to get ultra sounds and early detection and so that was my diagnosis and the good thing was that it was treatable.

About The Real
THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® nominated talk show on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network BET. Led by bold, diverse and outspoken hosts – Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley — these women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships. Emmy® nominated for Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment in its second season, THE REAL is unlike other talk shows, since each of the hosts are admittedly a “work in progress,” and fearlessly invites the viewers into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have turned the traditional talk show on its head. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, The Real originates from Los Angeles. Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) is Executive Producer.
