“Extra” spoke with cancer survivors Fran Drescher and Melissa Etheridge at the Jump Jive Thrive event in Los Angeles, where they shared their secrets to a healthy lifestyle.

Fran, who is in remission after being diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2000, said, "It's your life, so take control of it — don't be intimidated by your doctor, always get second and third opinions.”

She added, "Dial it back. Everything old is new again. Don't buy anything, eat anything, or do anything that didn't… couldn't have grown in your grandma's garden.”

The event, benefiting Breast Cancer Research Fund, airs Saturday on CBS at 1 PM ET.
