Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Kelly Clontz has opened up about her breast health issues. She said she’s been battling these for the past year.
She has missed the last several races. Substitute rider L.E. Tonglet has taken her place on the Steamfitters Local 602 ride.
“Great News Today!,” she said in a Facebook post. “For the last year, I have been going through Breast Health issues! My first ever mammogram showed concerns and changes after 6 months. I had a biopsy, a lumpectomy, got a second and third opinion after being told I needed a second lumpectomy! I decided to go with a new surgeon and she held off on the second lumpectomy because the pre op mammogram showed it was all taken out and came back Benign!
“Two weeks ago, I had multiple biopsies in both breasts and they all came back benign! I still have to get a breast MRI as precautionary measures and I plan to do genetic testing for Breast Cancer and Skin Cancer! Be your own advocate, schedule your mammograms, go with your gut, and surround yourself with those who support you!!”
At this time, it is not clear when Clontz will return to her ride. Pro Stock Motorcycle is not scheduled to compete this weekend at the Lucas Oil Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minnesota.
PSM returns at the end of the month at the Dodge Power Brokers U.S Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway Park in Brownsburg, Indiana.© 2007-2022 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
