    Anna Romano was diagnosed with stage one cancer in February 2010 after medics discovered a lump in her right breast during a routine mammogram.

    The 48-year-old underwent four rounds of chemotherapy to combat the disease and she admits going bald took a toll on her self-esteem.

    Anna tells People magazine, "I'm already shy and the last thing I wanted to do was walk around bald."

    The mum of four went on to make a full recovery and Anna insists her bout with cancer has taught her to put herself first: "I take on everybody's stress, but this had to be all about me. I'm not like that!"

    The "Everybody Loves Raymond" star kept his wife's health crisis a secret but the couple is now going public with the news in a bid to provide hope to fellow patients and survivors.

    He adds, "We dodged a bullet. Now we want to give back."

    The pair is parents to Ally, 21, twins Greg and Matt, 19, and Joe, 14.
