Jill Zarin Not Leaving Husband Bobby Amid Cancer Battle: “She Prays Everyday”
Jill Zarin is not leaving her husband’s side.
Though the former reality star is putting on a brave face, the situation has been very difficult.
“Jill put on a brave face at Bloomingdale’s Makeup Date 2017 event,” a source told Radar Online.
“Jill was holding back tears and looked worried and scared.”
The 53-year-old has been very open about her husband’s cancer battle on social media.
“I asked her how Bobby was doing and she said he was back in the hospital and she didn’t want to leave his side,” the source continued.
“Jill has been by Bobby’s side 24/7 since his cancer took a turn for the worse and she said it was hard to leave for the 45 minute appearance, but Bobby insisted that she go.”
Despite Bobby’s health issues, the Bravolebrity has honored her work commitments over the past few months.
“She said Bobby encouraged her to step away and honor her commitment to Bloomingdale’s, but it was very hard for her,” the source said.
“She said the past few weeks have been a roller coaster of good days and bad days and that the family is taking things day by day.”
The 71-year-old was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009.
“Jill said that she was going back to the hospital [after the event] and she seemed very worried about Bobby,” the source shared.
“She thanked the audience for their love, support and prayers during this difficult time.”
The source continued, “Bobby is everything to Jill and she prays every day for a miracle.”
Unfortunately, Bobby’s cancer “took an unexpected turn” over the summer.
“Jill and Bobby have an incredible support system of family, friends and fans that have rallied around them,” the source shared.
“It’s very sad. Friends and family don’t know what’s going to happen and they are all very worried and scared.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with Jill, Bobby, and their family during this tough time.
