She broke her silence in April 2008 in an interview where she announced her battle with Cancer as she wanted to inspire women across the globe to get regular checkups and stay strong. Nixon had successfully beaten Cancer and cured herself just like her mother who fought Breast Cancer when she was 12 years old. In an interview, Nixon said, ‘I want most women to hear me saying that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’
