UPDATE (Dec. 20, 2017, 10:45 a.m.): Camille Grammer gave Twitter fans an update on her second cancer diagnosis. On Twitter, she shared a video of herself working out and wrote, "Recovery program #cancer #awareness PJ bottoms, neoprene belt and my peloton[.] A week since my surgery. Can't sit on the bike. Stitches ouch."
The original story continues below.
Camille Grammer beat cancer once. And, after her second diagnosis, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pal is prepared to whoop the disease yet again. Still, Camille's second diagnosis was not something she saw coming.
Speaking to The Daily Dish at the December 15 RHOBH Season 8 premiere party in Los Angeles, the Beverly Hills mom said: "[The diagnosis] was surprising." However, Camille went on to admit that that she "kind of had a feeling" something was amiss. (As she's said: "Ladies, listen to your bodies.")
"I was with a bunch of women in Washington, D.C. because I co-chair the National Race to End Women's Cancer. I was with women that have all kinds of below-the-belt cancers and they were describing their symptoms. I thought 'My God, I had this kind — I had uterine cancer — but maybe I have this.'"
Upon returning to Los Angeles, Camille had her symptoms checked out immediately. Watch the clip above to hear what happened next, what Camille's next steps will be, and to learn more about why early detection truly is key.
As Camille has previously discussed, both her mother and grandmother have been affected by ovarian and endometrial cancer. And, when Camille had to undergo chemotherapy and radiation in 2013, her family was right there by her side.
Since her first diagnosis, Camille has become an active champion of cancer-related charities. In addition to chairing the aforementioned race, the former dancer even founded her own team for the 5K. And the team's name, Camille's Crusaders, couldn't be more apt. —Reporting by Alice Dubin
