Singer Bonnie Brown, who will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in October as part of the group The Browns, announced on Monday that she has lung cancer.
“It comes with great sadness that I have been diagnosed with stage four adenocarcinoma right lung cancer,” Brown said. “This news came as a shock to our family as we are still mourning the loss of my big brother.” Brown, her sister Maxine and brother Jim Ed Brown comprised the Browns singing group that had several hit songs in the 1950s and 1960s. Jim Ed Brown died of lung cancer in June at age 81.
Brown, 78, announced her cancer diagnosis during a luncheon at the hall of fame honoring the group that she attended with sister Maxine. Brown said she would begin treatment on Tuesday and predicted a full recovery.
