Clothing designer fought cancer in '01, she says

Liz Lange, the clothing designer who helped transform maternity clothing from boring to chic, once suffered from cervical cancer, she tells Glamour magazine.

Lange was diagnosed after the birth of her second child in 2001, when she was 35, and decided to keep the illness private.

"I knew that I had to fight, but I wanted to take on cancer on my terms," Lange says.

She underwent a hysterectomy and other treatment, but couldn't bear the pain of discussing the disease, she says.
