Camille Grammer was on The Doctors today to discuss her battle with cancer. Because both her mother and her grandmother had cancer, she was testes for genetic markers at age 34 and she found out she did in fact carry the gene. The doctors wanted her to have a hysterectomy but she didn’t want to go through medical menopause at 34. She now regrets that she decided not to have the hysterectomy. Later she developed stage two endometrial cancer. She had a radical hysterectomy with intense chemotherapy. Camille is now working to spread awareness for endometrial cancer. She says she is trying to get the word out that when you are young and test positive for the genetic markers, save yourself a lot of fear and chemo and get the hysterectomy.
They asked Camille if her ex-husband was supportive during her struggle. She says, “Zero. Not at all. He never even reached out to their children to make sure they were okay when their mom was diagnosed with cancer.” She said her friends and cast mates were very support and rallied around her.
Well, that was that. I was really expecting there to be more to it. They did not talk about the allegations she made against Dimitri Charalambopoulos . You can read about those here. Those were some interesting times.
