"Love in the City" star Tiffany Jones hasn't been shy about discussing her battle with breast cancer. Diagnosed in 2005 at age 29, Tiffany underwent treatment and launched a breast cancer awareness foundation called Pink Chose Me. Then, in 2007, Tiffany's cancer returned. She spent a year doing chemotherapy and has continued devoting herself to her foundation, aimed at helping women affected with cancer regain their emotional balance, self-worth and inner and outer beauty.
But there's something that not even Tiffany's friends know about her breast cancer story. In an emotional episode of "Love in the City," Tiffany makes a confession that leaves her three friends shocked.
While hosting a fundraising event to benefit a hospital in Ghana, which has a program that helps breast cancer patients get health insurance for $25, Tiffany stands in front of the group and drops a bombshell.
"Two months ago," she begins, "the cancer came back."
Tiffany's friends are stunned. Fighting back years, Tiffany takes a deep breath and prepares to share another secret about her health. "I chose to do a double mastectomy," she reveals.
The breast cancer survivor then expresses her gratitude to the friends and loved ones who have helped her in her difficult journey. "If I didn't have the support that I have, I don't know how you can get through something like this," she says.
Tiffany's friend Kiyah can't seem to stop her tears. "Hearing that new from Tiffany was… not something I was expecting at all," Kiyah says. "Like, you didn't even share this with any of us?"
After her speech, Tiffany heads straight to her teary-eyed friends. "You okay?" she asks, hugging each one tightly.
"It's so much," Kiyah says tearfully.
Fellow breast cancer survivor Bershan jokingly scolds Tiffany. "You didn't tell us!" she says, pulling her friend in for a hug. "It's a lot."
"It's a lot," Tiffany agrees.
