A couple weeks ago, I was speaking to a RHONY source about an unrelated matter, when the subject of Bobby Zarin came up. At that time, the last thing I had heard was that his condition was much improved. Unfortunately, I was told that his situation had taken a grave turn. I was asked not to post about it, so I did not. I was very sad to hear the broad details of the situation.
Apparently, Jill is ready to go public with the information in a paid article for People magazine. Here is the short version regarding his condition.
Last week, she [Jill] says, “We found out, after thinking he had pneumonia, that his Papillary Thyroid Disease became anaplastic thyroid cancer, one of the rarest cancers, which resists treatment.
“He is the most loving and caring person I have ever known besides my father. Sometimes life just isn’t fair. But we have such a great love story. He is the love of my life and I will do everything in my power to heal and care for him.”
I am not sure what procedure Bobby just had in a New York hospital, but there is no cure for the sort of cancer Bobby has now.
This Saturday, Jill is holding her fifth annual fundraiser for thyroid cancer research in The Hamptons. Jill goes all out for this event each year and this time the event is open to the public. While Jill is being optimistic hoping Bobby will be able to go, I doubt she will be there this year either.
It’s a very sad situation. Cancer is such a bitch. I will join with Jill in hoping and praying for a miracle. As controversial as Jill is, I’ve never spoken to anyone who had a bad word to say about Bobby. I wish him all the best.
I don’t believe I have to actually say this, but I do. Please be respectful in you comments. If you have to begin your comments with a disclaimer about your feelings for Jill, or some sort of jab, then please do not comment at all. Thanks.
