Ray Romano's wife has won her battle with breast cancer.

Anna Romano was diagnosed with stage one cancer in February, 2010 aftermedics discovered a lump in her right breast during a routine mammogram.

The 48 year old underwent four rounds of chemotherapy to combat the disease and she admits going bald took a toll on her self-esteem.

Anna tells People magazine, "I'm already shy and the last thing I wanted to do was walk around bald".

He adds, "We dodged a bullet. Now we want to give back".

The pair is parents to Ally, 21, twins Greg and Matt, 19, and Joe, 14.
