We're so glad she's back in good health! In an exclusive interview with In Touch, Little Women: LA star Terra Jolé opened up about how she's been doing since suffering a breast cancer scare earlier this year.
"My health is good. I've been monitoring it and so I'm not out of the woods, but I'm still making sure that I am healthy and taking care of everything when it comes to my body," she said via phone while promoting her new memoir, Fierce at Four Foot Two. "When you're a mom, you don't really care about — you think about yourself secondly, but if you're not caring about yourself, then eventually it's going to reflect on what's happening to your children. So, you definitely want to take care of yourself."

Fans of the Lifetime reality series know that the mother-of-two suffered a scare and underwent a biopsy and multiple tests. The disease runs in her family — and she opened up to People back in April about obtaining her results.
“There is nothing more nerve-racking than waiting for your breast cancer results. All you can really do is stay positive and keep your mind busy. I found myself pushing the family out to water parks and other day adventures. Things that I knew would be harder to do if facing an uphill cancer battle. Basically, my goal was to spend every free moment enjoying my family and not thinking about what’s to come,” she said in a statement.

“When I first found out I was cancer free it was an overwhelming feeling of freedom. No longer facing what was to come and free to no longer stress on the what ifs. My husband Joe stayed strong but after finding out I was cancer free really shared with me how scared he was about the possibility. He even mentioned moving around family if we needed help. It’s wild to know he kept his feelings from me and remained so strong while we waited for the results. Tears of Joy.”
