In society today, it is hard to find actors and actresses who manage to keep their personal lives private. The media, and especially social media, promote Hollywood news and report on even the littlest things.

For one actress, she has managed to stay out of the spotlight and hide a disease for the last five years. Now, she is opening up about her ongoing battle.

Mindy Cohn, most notable for her role on the classic sitcom “The Facts of Life,” shared she has been battling breast cancer for the last 5 years. Her diagnosis came in an unexpected way.

“The actress, best known for her very first small-screen role as Natalie on the classic sitcom ‘The Facts of Life,’ shared the news in an interview this week in People magazine. She said she first found out in 2012, after going to the doctor for exhaustion — and getting an unexpected diagnosis,” according to Today.

"It was breast cancer," she said. "I kept that secret for a long time. I’ve always been an optimist but the cancer metastasized. It kept spreading and coming back."
