Actress Krysta Rodriguez to chronicle cancer battle on blog

Actress Krysta Rodriguez has revealed she is battling breast cancer.

The Broadway regular, 30, announced the news on her new blog, ChemoCouture.com, which is aimed at women who are undergoing chemotherapy.


She writes, "In addition to performing, I've always had a passion for art, fashion, decoration and overall beautification. I try to have fun with fashion and design and make it my goal to enjoy it and share it with others. Since being diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall of 2014 on the heels of my 30th birthday, I'm taking this passion of beautification to my treatment.


"I've always believed you feel better when you look better. And what better time to test that out than when I'm going to be feeling pretty terrible for a while!


"ChemoCouture will be dedicated to all things fun and fashion, while being focused on the specific needs of those women going through chemo. My goal is to have us all feeling beautiful together, wherever you are in your life."


Rodriguez portrayed late teen idol Annette Funicello in 2014 TV movie Wishin' and Hopin'.
