The 46-year-old who was diagnosed last year explained that her children and family were her backbone and helped to be fearless when she underwent a mastectomy. In her words

“I have young kids, and I think you end up being strong for them. In the course of being strong for them, you automatically become strong .”

Even after undergoing a mastectomy, Foster revealed that she still has to be cautious with her health, especially with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. According to her, she uses a pill form of chemo that weakens her immune system, and as a result, has to take extra care not to go out unless necessary.

Although David and Amy didn’t have the best relationships while she was young, the duo has managed to work past their differences to create a working relationship that evolves every day.

People Magazine recalls that Foster announced her diagnosis on June 10, 2019, with a photo of her getting into an MRI machine on Instagram. 

In the lengthy caption, the “When Autumn Leaves” author explained that she was “lucky” and “grateful” for the early diagnosis because it “could have easily been so much worse if I had waited.”

She then advised her female followers to get a mammogram as soon as possible whenever they feel something unusual in their breasts.

​​The Daily Mail noted that her famous producer father was in the comments section with a positive message telling her how proud he was of her strength and attitude to her diagnosis. He also assured her of his undying support.

Although David and Amy didn’t have the best relationships while she was young, the duo has managed to work past their differences to create a working relationship that evolves every day.

This same can be said for her half-sisters, Sara, Erin, and Jordan, who created a new family tradition amid the lockdown. 

Per People Magazine, David and his new wife, Katharine McPhee, alongside his girls gather every week in the backyard of Erin’s home in Los Angeles to discuss politics, trending topics, and life issues with a bottle of wine. 

A new Netflix documentary titled, “David Foster: Off The Record” focuses on the producer’s career and family life, especially his relationship with his five daughters.
