Mathew Knowles made headlines the world over yesterday when it was announced that he had been diagnosed with breast cancer and would be taking to Good Morning America to document his experience.
Moments ago, his interview with Michael Strahan aired and saw the music manager – and father to superstars Beyonce and Solange – disclose details.
During the emotional and insightful sit-down (which comes at the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month), Knowles revealed that blood specs of his shirt prompted him to get checked and eventually confirmed his diagnosis. A diagnosis Black men are more predisposed to.
Head below to see the the 67-year old explain why, despite having surgery in July and being in the clear, he has overhauled his entire approach to health and wants others to follow-suit.
Salute to Mathew for his bravery sharing his story and encouraging men to get checked. For, by doing so, he could well be saving several lives.
