May 24, 2023 12:44 am in by

Morgan Wade has revealed she’s set to undergo a double mastectomy later this year.

She shared on social media, “I’ll go in depth later, but I was diagnosed with the RAD51D gene a while back. In November I’ll undergo a double mastectomy as a preventative.”

Wade continued, “Women with a RAD51D mutation have about a 10-20 percent lifetime risk for ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer (these three cancers and their risks are related and are often referred to together as ovarian cancer). Women with a RAD51D mutation have about a 20-40 percent lifetime risk for breast cancer with a tendency for triple-negative breast cancer.”

Wade revealed to Page Six that she was diagnosed during her gig stint in Europe last year.

“I’m feeling fine, I’m just pissed I won’t be able to work out because I really like working out. That’s my only qualm about it,” she continued. “My mum had it, and my little cousin is going to get it, but I’ll be fine.”

“I’m going really hard [with my music] up until November so then November and December I have off to rest.”

The news follows Wade’s announcement of her second album, Psychopath, due for release on August 25. The 13-track album is the follow-up from her debut album Reckless, released in 2021, as well as the deluxe edition from the following year which featured an additional six songs.

“With Psychopath, we’ve done a really good job of moving on from Reckless, to the next stage without it being so crazy different. I’m excited, every song on there has its own sound and is completely different,” she said.

“[The album] goes into where I’m at in life right now. Which is so busy. It’s about growing up and being older, and starting to feel like, ‘Is it time to settle down?’ I think you’ll see a lot of that on the record.”

Since the release of Reckless, Wade also dropped two holiday singles (I’ll Be Home For Christmas and Santa Claus Is Back In Town), the Acoustic Sessions EP (2022) and The Night: The Collection (2023).
