Real Housewives of New York alum Jill Zarin’s husband Bobby Zarin has been battling thyroid cancer since June, 2009. He went through a period of remission, but the cancer returned to his brain November last year. Now, Jill is revealed to news outlets that Bobby is now hospitalized because his cancer has “taken an unexpected turn.”
Jill will continue to host her annual Luxury Luncheon in Southhampton Saturday, July 29, to benefit International Thyroid Oncology Group. “I want everybody to show up on Saturday happy to celebrate Bobby because he is still with us and he is fighting,” Jill told People about the event.
“He’s not doing well right now,” a source told US Weekly. Their source said that many of the “Housewives” have been by the visit 71-year-old Bobby, including Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer.
“I love my Bobby so much,” a tearful Jill told People. “On Saturday, we want to show him how much we love him by raising a lot of money for the International Thyroid Oncology Group, which is looking for cutting-edge treatments for advanced thyroid cancer.”
The reality star says that she’s been losing weight and is in “shock” about the turn in her husband’s health. “The cancer came back in his brain last fall and since then, it’s been one thing after another,” she says.
