The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Camille Grammer is no stranger to the difficulties of a cancer diagnosis. She's battled the disease twice in the past, and has also watched several of her female family members also go through similar ordeals.
And now she's offered an update on her mother, who is once again dealing with cancer. "My mom is visiting and as some may know she has been battling cancer for years now," she said on Twitter. "She started dialysis and is adjusting to her new normal. She told me to see and do everything that I love. Life is too short. Bless her heart."
Back in July, Camille applauded her mother's strength in the midst of her latest battle with cancer, writing on Instagram, "She is the epitome of strength and an inspiration to me and many other cancer warriors. I love you mom!"
Camille also mentioned that her mom was "very sick" during the emotional RHOBH Season 9 reunion, which she cites as one of the reasons she was feeling extra emotional as of late. "This year has been very difficult for me... I'm overwhelmed," she said.
According to Heavy.com, Camille's mom has battled three types of cancer in the past: ovarian, colon, and bladder cancer. The website reports that the longtime RHOBH pal opened up about her mom's cancer journey in an interview with HealthLine back in 2012.
"My mom was diagnosed at the age of 46 with ovarian cancer and she was in late stage two, heading into stage three, and had a tumor about the size of a small grapefruit," she reportedly said at the time. "So they opted for the full hysterectomy and during the surgery they realized that the cancer had spread to some of the lymph nodes on her abdominal region and area, so they had to remove that. Then she went through months of chemotherapy and radiation."
