    I heard this news of the radio this morning. Good luck to Melissa.

    Etheridge diagnosed with breast cancer
    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Singer Melissa Etheridge has been diagnosed with breast cancer and has cancelled upcoming tour dates to undergo treatment, her publicist said Thursday.

    Etheridge, 43, will undergo surgery and a "speedy and complete recovery" is expected by her doctor, publicist Marcel Pariseau said in a statement.

    The cancer was detected early and Etheridge has been receiving treatment, Pariseau said.

    "I am fortunate to be under a wonderful doctor's care and thankful that this was caught early," Etheridge said in the statement. "I am looking forward to a quick and full recovery."

    Etheridge and actress Tammy Lynn Michaels held a commitment ceremony in September 2003. The musician, who lives in Los Angeles, shares custody of a daughter and son with former partner Julie Cypher, who had the children through artificial insemination using a sperm donation from rocker David Crosby.

    Etheridge's latest album, Lucky, was released in February. Refunds for tickets to her upcoming shows will be available where they were bought; the entertainer's Web site says she had been scheduled to play 11 dates in seven cities this month.

    Oh, no. I'm a big fan of hers. I caught her show back in '96...just a girl and her guitar, it was an excellent concert.

    Best wishes to her for a speedy recovery.
