Lots to talk about: Bratt’s appearance in SXSW was just days after he spoke out about Talisa Soto’s diagnosis of breast cancer. Today
Bratt’s appearance at SXSW came just days after he opened up about his wife Talisa Soto’s breast cancer diagnosis on Today.
Bratt and Talisa Soto (an actor and former model) would normally keep such intimate news to themselves, but they decided to make it public in order to raise awareness about regular breast screenings.
“This is something that I normally would keep close-held,” the actor, 58, stated.
The Law & Order alum revealed that his wife urged him to share her story in hopes that it would remind and inspire women about the importance of getting yearly screenings.
Making a difference: The actor is promoting his new series DMZ. His wife urged him not to make public his breast cancer diagnosis. This will encourage other women to have regular breast screenings.
Getting personal: “This is something that I normally would keep close-held but through the pandemic, self-exam, and then going to her annual mammogram, she discovered she was positive for breast carcinoma,” the actor, 58, stated.
He stated that women need to be proactive about their own well-being. “Not only should you eat well, but you must also make regular visits to the doctor to have these exams included in your daily life.”
Bratt said that Soto, 54, is doing well after treatments, but admitted there were some side effects.
“The medication has a negative effect on the hormone system, but she was subsequently found to be free of cancer. We’re just trying to prevent it from happening again.
Bratt and Soto are proud parents of Sophia, aged 19, and Mateo, 16 years old. They are close to a major milestone: April 13 will mark their 20th anniversary.
