Her mother then interjected to say she was going to “sit down” as she was worried the news would be “that bad.”
“It’s not that bad,” the Lifetime star assured, adding: “I just want you to know that you don’t need to worry like everything’s going to be okay.
“And the only reason I didn’t tell you is cause I don’t want you to worry,” she continued.
“Next week I am having a doubled mastectomy because I have breast cancer,” Terra revealed, breaking down in tears.
