Former Baywatch Icon Nicole Eggert Seen Bravely Battling Breast Cancer on Los Angeles Streets

Nicole Eggert, the former Baywatch actress, was seen in Los Angeles amidst her fight against stage two cribriform carcinoma breast cancer.

Despite her health struggles, the 52-year-old actress maintained her routine, running errands in a laid-back attire of sweatpants and a hoodie.

Sporting oversized black sunglasses and cozy gray Ugg slippers, Eggert exuded a casual yet stylish vibe, accompanied by a fashionable leather handbag.

Outpouring of Support

Eggert’s public battle with cancer has drawn an outpouring of support from her celebrity friends.

In a heartfelt video shared in March, capturing the emotional moment she shaved her head with her daughter’s assistance, Eggert received messages of encouragement from fellow actresses like Jennie Garth and Alyssa Milano.

Taylor Hasselhoff and Erika Eleniak, both associated with Baywatch, also expressed their support with messages of love and encouragement.

Health Struggles and Diagnosis

In February, Eggert revealed that more cancer had been found in her lymph nodes as she continued to battle a ‘very rare’ form of breast cancer.

The actress first disclosed her diagnosis in December 2023, admitting that irregular breast checks and complications from breast implants had delayed the detection of her condition.

Despite experiencing weight gain and persistent pain in her left breast, it wasn’t until October that Eggert sought medical attention, leading to a stage 2 cribriform carcinoma breast cancer diagnosis.

Challenges and Reflections

Reflecting on her journey, Eggert expressed regret over not prioritizing self-examinations and highlighted the challenges posed by breast implants in detecting anomalies.

She emphasized the importance of regular self-checks and cautioned against the risks associated with implants, labeling them a ‘huge mistake’ in her case.

Baywatch Reboot and Future Prospects

Amidst her health battle, Eggert addressed rumors of her potential involvement in the Baywatch reboot. While she has not been contacted about a role in the revival, Eggert remains open to the idea, particularly considering her ongoing work on a Baywatch documentary.

She expressed willingness to participate in the reboot under certain conditions, indicating a preference for roles that align with her current circumstances rather than reprising her iconic role as Summer Quinn.


Nicole Eggert’s courageous battle against breast cancer serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of early detection and self-care.

Despite facing significant health challenges, Eggert continues to inspire with her resilience and determination to raise awareness about breast cancer while exploring new opportunities in her career.
