In February , Sheryl Crow was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer during a routine mammogram. At just 44 years old, she eventually underwent a lumpectomy or removal of cancerous tissue of both breasts and received radiation therapy. Now 57, Crow says her ductal carcinoma in situ DCIS diagnosis taught her a lot and even shaped the way she approaches self-care today — especially putting her own health first and finding a community that advocates for that.

Crosby also believes that cutting back on dairy, going mostly gluten-free, and exercising with a rowing machine has helped her stay healthy.
