Beyoncé’s dad talks breast cancer diagnosis on ‘Good Morning America’


ABC/”Good Morning America”Mathew Knowles, the father of Beyoncé and Solange, has breast cancer, and he’ll talk about it Wednesday morning exclusively on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Knowles sits down with GMA‘s Michael Strahan for the one-on-one, during which he shares what it was like to break the news of his diagnosis to his family.  GMA tweeted a promo for the interview Tuesday, with Knowles also tweeting an invitation to tune in for a “special announcement.”

Although it’s far more common in women, an estimated 2,670 breast cancer cases will be diagnosed in men in the U.S. this year, according to the American Cancer Society.  By comparison, an estimated 271,270 cases are expected to be diagnosed in women in 2019.

Knowles divorced Tina Knowles, Beyoncé and Solange’s mother, in 2011.  Both have since remarried.
