Bif Naked Fighting Breast Cancer By Making Music

Bif Naked, Canadian punk rocker, 36-year-old newlywed, vows to keep working on two new albums while in treatment for breast cancer. Bif, born Beth Torbert, found the breast lump herself while doing a regular breast self-exam. Bif is known for her healthy lifestyle, strict vegan diet, dedicated workout routine, and regular yoga sessions.

"I have never been one to give up when an obstacle is placed in front of me. I am in the fight of my life, and I'm lucky to have the support of my husband Ian and many friends and family members," said Bif. She plans to continue work on her sixth album, as well as a new project with Spanish-born, death-metal guitarist La Machina, to be called Jakkarta.

Bif Naked's treatment will include surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
