Following her shocking breast cancer diagnosis last month, PR mogul Roxy Jacenko is expected to undergo surgery later this week.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, a source close to the Sweaty Betty CEO said Jacenko will undergo a “partial removal” at one of Sydney’s top hospitals.
The mother-of-two found a lump in her left breast while in the shower a short time after her husband Oliver Curtis was sent to jail for insider trading.
The 36-year-old revealed the diagnosis to Curtis in a call to his jail which lasted for six minutes.

The surgery news comes days after the family was seen spending time at Taronga Zoo with a 60 Minutes film crew, who are said to be releasing a story on Roxy's transition into single parenthood while Curtis serves his time in jail.
"@tarongazoo thanks for a fab afternoon." Jacenko wrote alongside an Instagram image of her two children sharing a stroller.

Since sharing her news with the public, Jacenko has used the spotlight attention to raise awareness about breast cancer detection.
"I should have known better and I should have done routine mammograms knowing that my mum had suffered from breast cancer – but I didn't, I just thought, 'I'll worry about that when I am 40 plus," she said following her diagnosis.
