Jill Zarin Bobby Has Cancer Again
“I was hysterically crying,” Jill told People on learning her husband’s cancer had returned. “I was scared to death.”
“The radioactive iodine (a treatment Bobby had gone under the first time) usually kills off whatever undetectable cancer cells are left in your body after surgery,” Bobby explained. “We thought it was cured – and it usually is in about 93 percent of cases. But I wasn’t able to absorb the radioactive iodine. So it came back.”
“If it wasn’t for that routine checkup, it could have been too late by the time we would have found it,” added Jill.
Jill revealed the pair will be vocal about her husband’s cancer, stating that, “When it comes to a cancer diagnosis, some people don’t want to tell anybody. They feel if they don’t tell anybody, it’s going to go away. Like if you don’t talk about it, it doesn’t exist. But Bobby and I want to talk about it. We are willing to share our story in the hope that it will help someone else.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Zarin family at this time and we are hopeful Bobby’s cancer will go into remission again.
