The singer released a statement on his website today, which reads as follows.
“I’m sorry to inform you that Majella was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She is undergoing treatment at present and, as it was found in the early stages, we are very hopeful of a full recovery.
“I know that many of you would like to send your good wishes to Majella but at this time we cannot deal with a lot of mail so we would ask you not to send cards or letters, all we need are your prayers to help us through this difficult time and we know we can rely on that.”
The 52 year-old mother of two grown children, who is originally from Tipperary, has spoken to the media and in public about her struggle with depression.
She spoke on the topic during Buncrana’s Feel Good Fortnight earlier this month.
