Veteran actress Charlotte Rae has been diagnosed with bone cancer. The former ‘Facts of Life’ star turned 91 on Saturday.
“Last Monday, I found out I have bone cancer,” the actress revealed to PEOPLE. “About seven years ago, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer — which is a miracle that they found it because usually it’s too late. My mother, sister and my uncle died of pancreatic cancer. After six months of chemotherapy, I was cancer-free. I lost my hair, but I had beautiful wigs. Nobody even knew.”
“So now, at the age of 91, I have to make up my mind. I’m not in any pain right now. I’m feeling so terrific and so glad to be above ground,” she explains. “Now I have to figure out whether I want to go have treatment again to opt for life. I love life. I’ve had a wonderful one already. I have this decision to make.”
Rae was supposed to start treatment on Thursday, but decided to cancel. She has since decided to go through with it.

RuPaul has been named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.
“The iconic host, advocate, drag queen, singer, model, actor and author is a trailblazer who continues to break down barriers in a career that spans over 25 years,” Time said in a statement.
It’s an amazing time for RuPaul, as he won an Emmy for hosting his hit show, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race.’
“Each year our Time 100 list lets us step back and measure the forces that move us,” said Time Editor-in-Chief Nancy Gibbs. “One way or another they each embody a breakthrough: they broke the rules, broke the record, broke the silence, broke the boundaries to reveal what we’re capable of.”
To top it all off, Ru is profiled by supermodel Naomi Campbell for his feature.
“Ru was different. Not just because he had perfect, precise clothes and makeup, or because he was the only man I knew who could look that good in a wig and heels. There were no rough edges to be found. But as I got to know him better, I got to experience firsthand his wit and his intelligence—he’s like an encyclopedia. And his beauty is far beyond skin-deep.”
RuPaul’s show, ‘Drag Race’ is in its 9th season and is currently airing on VH1.
