Sharon Osbourne had surgery for colon cancer that had spread to her lymph nodes in July 2002. While doctors gave her only a 33 percent survival prognosis, she eventually beat the cancer, with much of her battle documented by MTV cameras during the filming of the second season of "The Osbournes." She later had preventative double mastectomy after discovering she had the breast cancer gene.
