The wife of Montgomery Gentry's Troy Gentry has been diagnosed with breast cancer. He broke the news to fans on Facebook.

Angie discovered her breast cancer before Montgomery Gentry launched their 'Check Your Headlights' campaign, an initiative to raise funds for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.  Fans who purchase Montgomery Gentry's single 'Headlights' on GhostTunes receive a Check Your Headlights T-shirt, with a portion of the sales benefiting the American Cancer Society.

Troy says his wife's diagnosis 'rocked our world a bit over the last few weeks. Angie is going through chemo and her prognosis is very good. We’d love for you to keep her in your prayers over the next few months.'

This isn't the first cancer scare for Montgomery Gentry. Eddie was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2011. He underwent surgery and is now cancer free.

It's been a tough few years for Montgomery Gentry. Troy lost his brother Keith in June. Eddie got a divorce, filed for bankruptcy and had a tornado rip through his hometown. With all the bad news, you'd think this can only go up for Montgomery Gentry.

Are thoughts and prayers are with Troy and his wife and she fights this dreaded disease called cancer. May Angie's diagnosis be a sign for women over 40 to 'Check Your Headlights' annually. The best way to fight breast cancer is with early detection.
