Farrah Abraham’s mom underwent life-saving surgery after being diagnosed with colon cancer – and she went through the medical crisis alone. In Debra Danielsen’s tell-all book exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com, she claimed her family abandoned her during the difficult time.

Two weeks before her father passed away from colon cancer, she was diagnosed with the same disease.

“A few days after we buried my father, I went in for a life-saving operation,” she wrote in her upcoming book Vapor: A True Story of How I Fell Victim To Catfishing. “The surgeon removed 13.5 feet of intestine to ensure that the 4-centimeter polyp was going to cause no further problems.”

Danielsen explained how the only person to help her during her grueling recovery was her then-boyfriend.

“None of my family members came to the hospital to be with me,” she wrote. “It was very scary, lonely and hurtful.”

She explained how three days after the surgery, it was “very difficult” to stand and walk.

“I had gone from being very athletic to not walking at all as a result of this colon surgery,” she explained.

After extensive testing on her lymph nodes, colon tissues and polyp, she learned there was no cancer.

Danielsen exclusively clarified to Radar that although she was diagnosed with cancer, she “never had cancer.”

“There was a 99% chance it would turn into cancer,” she explained.

The medical crisis changed Danielsen’s life for the better, as she began eating healthier. The only side effect today from the surgery is that she “gets dehydrated more easily.”

Vapor will be released on January 30.
