Det. Sgt. BJ Bayne’s daughter, Heather Cash has Cushing’s disease and faces surgery to remove a second brain tumor this month.

Cash, a 21-year-old student at USC Upstate, was diagnosed a year and a half ago with Cushing’s disease and underwent surgery to remove a tumor in her brain.  Last month she went back to Emory Hospital in Georgia where she was diagnosed with another brain tumor.  The surgery is of high risk but is Cash’s only option of survival as there is no cure for Cushing’s disease.

Rose is ascending the country charts with her hit single “I Ain’t Your Mama” off her debut album “Cut to Impress.”
