Shannon Tweed, lifetime partner of Gene Simmons of KISS, had recently discovered that she may have breast cancer. After appearing on The Doctors and admitting to the fact that she sensed some of the symptoms, Shannon consulted her doctor, Dr. Kristi Funk.

Actress and model, Shannon lived a life in front of the camera, so this was nothing new to share such shaky news with the audience of their hit reality show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” on A&E.

Gene Simmons decided to target men and husbands overall, to encourage them about Breast Cancer Awareness. It’s not only something women experience, it affects the entire family.

    There is some really good information on this site about Shannon Tweed and how this affects her life partner Gene Simmons. I am constantly getting on my husband to get himself checked out since he is past 40 but he does not pay attention even though we had a scare with my mom being diagnosed with breast cancer (6th year in remission.) In fact, I have been inspired by my mom's courage and created a blog of my own dedicated to breast cancer. Please share it with the world.
