Joanne-Borgella

Joanne Borgella, “American Idol” alum and Wilhemina model, revealed over the weekend that she is battling cancer.  On Saturday, Borgella posted a video on Facebook informing friends and fans that she was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago. The video was apparently shot while Borgella was undergoing chemotherapy in the hospital.

“It’s been crazy. It’s very unexpected. I’m 31-years-old. I go to the doctor — I’ve gotten checkups,” Borgella said. “It’s a rare case because it has spread to my chest.”

Borgella, who is currently starring  on  on NuvoTV’s “Curvy Girls,” didn’t give any information on the type of cancer she was diagnosed with.

“Everything happens for a reason and I believe this was part of my journey in life. And I went through it with my mother and she’s a winner. And I ask everyone to just pray for me, because the power of prayer truly, truly does work.”

Here’s a clip from Borgella’s previous “American Idol” performance.
