Success in life is partly about how one deals with adversity and Fran Drescher is an actress who has shown that she will not let adversity prevent her from thriving in life.
The actress on the show "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" revealed that when she learned that she had uterine cancer she cried as she thought her life was over but she was fortunate as it was only in Stage 1."
Her cancer diagnosis led to her writing the best-selling book 'Cancer Schmancer' in which she talked about her experience and educates women on prevention and early detection.
She feels that "she got famous, got cancer, and lived to talk about it and she is talking".
For many fans she is an inspiration as she basically took the fight to cancer and has kept on living. The actress known for her nasally voice has become an outspoken advocate of women 'detoxifying' their homes to prevent cancer and she has proceeded to prosper as an entertainer.
The television and film star recently completed her extended engagement on the Broadway production of "Cinderella" in the role of the stepmother 'Madame' in which she surprised herself with her embracing of the 'dark' side of the role. The role was a challenge for her because she had to at times be someone who she is not which is 'acting mean' and yet she was able to find aspects of the character that made her compelling to the audience as only the most talented actors are able to do.
In her conversation with Oprah she talks about meeting the love of her life and other personal stories but for her fans the most impressive aspect of her story is how she has dealt with the adversity.
Fran Drescher dealt with a crisis by continuing to fight and in true Fran Drescher fashion, she has fought, won and is now talking about the experience to help others.
