Madame Noire sat down with “Motown” star Valisia LeKae to talk about the challenge of getting diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the peak of her fame, and how she navigated her career during this time. The article covers LeKae’s experience with the diagnosis, treatment, learning she was cancer-free, and how it impacted her career.
LeKae said she received incredible support from her fellow performers, whom she described as “a wonderful cast that was there for me, keeping me laughing, smiling, cooking for me, coming to visit me, keeping me in their prayers and showing up in miraculous ways. Everyone who was a part of ‘Motown’ really was great and by my side, and I’m really, really grateful for that.’ ”
