As Radar readers know, Chapman was diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer earlier this month. She underwent a surgery for her tumor and is currently recovering at home with her family. She has not revealed her prognosis as of yet.
“As most of you know I’ve spent a lifetime facing tests and challenges I didn’t see coming and certainly never expected. I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, ‘You have cancer,'” Chapman wrote after her diagnosis.“I have what is referred to as a T2 Tumor in my throat that is blocking my breathing. My doctors are suggesting immediate treatment and surgery before the disease progresses,” she said before her surgery.
According to doctors, Chapman was expected to remain in the rehab facility for various weeks in order to recover. However, as is clear in recent photos, the reality star looked good as new when out and about with her husband!
Chapman’s family friend Richard Moore told Radar after his Sept. 19 visit that she was awaiting the tests that would determine her future treatment.
“There is no quick fix and no appealing options for treatment. Yes, cancer sucks,” Chapman said. “While I know my diagnosis, until I come out of my surgery, I do not yet know my prognosis. If all goes well, my doctors will be able to get the tumor.”
Despite her shocking health crisis and tragic loss, Chapman assured fans she was staying strong. “I will fight every step of the way. My husband and children are counting on me to be there for years to come. I am so very grateful to be surrounded by family and friends who have given me incredible support during this very challenging time.”
