Kaedy Kiely, veteran radio host now heard on mornings at 97.1/The River, had surgery yesterday to treat breast cancer. She said it’s “the best case scenerio” right now, with the doctors optimistic they got it all though results won’t be in until next week. Then she’ll know what type of treatment she’ll need in terms of chemo and radiation.
She said she discovered a lump a month ago and thinks she caught it early enough.
Kiely, 49, worked at both 96rock and Z93 for more than 20 years, then was off the air for about four years until the River hired her last year.
You can send her a note through the WSB Web site where the station wrote the following:
Our beloved morning host Kaedy Kiely announced on her show Thursday Morning that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer as she left for her lumpectomy.
Kaedy has been a friend to many and a familiar voice on the Atlanta Airwaves for years and we all just want to wish her well through this personal issue that she wanted to share with all of us.
Kaedy wanted to share this info to all River listeners, men and woman alike, the importance of pre-screening and annual check ups with your physician. Cancer affects many so take the precautions you can to treat and prevent this huge health issure.
Send Kaedy your best wishes as we are sure they will mean the world to her and good luck Kaedy – We are praying for you and your family!
