    Matthew Knowles History of Cancer Puts Beyonce at Risk

    Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles, is a cancer survivor.

    Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles, is a carrier of the BRCA 2 gene mutation, but fortunately he caught it early. Matthew talked to “Good Morning America” with Michael Strahan, and opened up about his journey with the highly deadly disease.

    He appeared on the show on Wednesday and shared that he’s doing much better after undergoing a necessary surgery.

    “I’m doing well, Michael. I had surgery in late July, and now I’m following all the steps for recovery.”

    Evidently, BRCA, a form of breast cancer, can be passed down through a family’s bloodline. So it was important that he share his health concerns with his family. Matthew says after finding out the news, he immediately called his children. And from there, they took the news and acted fast.


    It wasn’t long before they all were getting tested fro BRCA too.

    “That was the first call because it’s genetic. It means my kids and grandkids also have a higher risk. They handled it well, getting the BRCA mutation test.”

    Page Six reports that Beyonce is already ahead of the game. She’s reportedly already started her clean bill of health by switching to a strict diet and cutting out alcohol. Her journey is documented in Homecoming.
