In 2000, Fran Drescher, the star of the '90s TV sitcom "The Nanny," received a diagnosis no one wants to hear.
"When I was told I had uterine cancer I really wept," she says in the above clip from "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" "I thought that it was just over for me, but by the grace of God I was only in Stage 1."
Not one to stay silent, Drescher went on to write the best-selling book Cancer Schmancer, which details her experience and educates women on prevention and early detection.
"I honestly feel like I got famous, I got cancer, and I lived to talk about it -- and I'm talking," she says.
In the video below, Drescher appears on HuffPost Live and shares her best tip for preventing cancer.
