Sheryl Crow Diagnosed With A Brain Tumor

Celebrity mom Sheryl Crow shares news of a benign brain tumor.

Sheryl took some flak last month after she forgot a few lyrics to her famous song “Soak Up the Sun” during a concert performance. At the time she just joked it off with the audience, citing her age (50). But, it turns out that it was more than that Sheryl admits that she was diagnosed with a tumor in her brain. “I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor. I haven’t really talked about it. In November, I found out I have a brain tumor. But it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it.”

Her rep tells People that the tumor is a meningioma, which is typically benign and develops from the brain and spinal cord linings.

Sheryl, mom to sons Wyatt and Levi, battled breast cancer six years ago.
