Maura Tierney Speaks Out on Health
Actress Maura Tierney on Monday addressed the health issue that led to the shutdown of production of her new NBC series "Parenthood."

"I have discovered a tumor in my breast which requires surgery," Tierney said in a statement. "I will not know either my exact diagnosis or course of treatment until that surgery is performed. My doctors have all assured me this is a very treatable condition. I'm very optimistic as to the outcome and want to thank everyone who has sent positive thoughts and support. I look forward to going back to work soon."

Tierney informed NBC and "Parenthood" producers about the situation late last week when the network put production on the series on hold for eight weeks to give the actress time to undergo the necessary medical procedures.
