Saying the past month has been a shocker for Roxy Jacenko would be a serious understatement.
Just weeks after her husband Oliver Curtis was jailed for insider trading the PR mogul has announced she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
“She cried last night because I said I wasn’t going to come home for two nights because I would be in hospital,” the mother-of-two said before explaining she had not told her two-year-old son Hunter, as he was still too young to understand.

Jacenko also confirmed that she has told Curtis of her diagnosis, saying, “Obviously he has got no control to be able to assist with anything, so it is particularly challenging for him. He is a broken person, an absolutely broken person.”

The decision to tell her social-media famous daughter was made because she is such a “perceptive” and “inquisitive” child.
Following Curtis’ sentencing Jacenko says her children have been her main support, with Pixie thinking her mum had “a very bad day in the office” on the day Curtis left for prison. “She gave me a pat on the back and said: “Don’t worry.””
