However, on Monday Gunvalson told Celebz! that she was “diagnosed with uterine cancer about 2 years ago” and confirmed that she had shared the news on Lewis’ podcast.

“Due to the diagnosis, I had to undergo a non-elective complete hysterectomy. I was lucky enough to catch it early, thanks to always following my annual exam schedule,” she says, encouraging women to get their annual exams. That said, as Gunvalson said he did not have symptoms.

“I want to move forward and not have to address it again. I realize how lucky I am because it was caught before it spread, and the process was extremely successful,” Gunvalson continued. “I’m so grateful to everyone who reached out to me and was concerned after this news broke, but I’m fine now. The lesson here is to always make sure to pay attention to your body, go to your annual doctor’s appointments, And take care of your health.”

Gunvalson did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Granthshala News.
