It has been a difficult year for former “Real Housewives of New York” star Jill Zarin and her husband Bobby Zarin.
According to E! News, Bobby has been in the hospital since Friday as a result of his ongoing battle with thyroid cancer.
“It’s been a difficult year since his brain tumor diagnosis but ironically that’s not even the issue. His papillary thyroid cancer has morphed into something called anaplastic thyroid cancer. It’s very, very rare,” Jill explained.
The reality star explained that her husband is stable and they’ve had a great support group helping them through this. “Right now Bobby’s okay, he’s stable. Our friends have been unbelievable in rallying around us,” she said.
Jill’s focus remains on Bobby but she is looking forward to her 5th Annual Luxury Luncheon. The luncheon helps raise money and awareness for thyroid cancer, so the cause is close to the Zarins.
Expected guests this year include current “Real Housewives of New York” stars Luann D’Agostino and Tinsley Mortimer. Cynthia Bailey, Kelly Rutherford and Gretchen Rossi and more are expected to appear as well.
“The show must go on. This is about thyroid cancer. I’ll do what I have to do to raise money for this disease and then I’ll come back to the city and take care of him,” Jill said.
