The fiancee of Rosie O’Donnell, Michelle Rounds, has a serious medical condition, and it has resulted in the postponement of their planned wedding, reports Entertainment Tonight.
The condition is desmoid tumors, a painful condition that is similar to cancer, the story reports.
O’Donnell went online via Twitter and a blog post to let people know the news before word got out to the media.
The story reports: “In her blog message written in poetic style, Rosie explains how Michelle’s condition began. ‘On mothers day… morning pain… that won’t let up.’ She reveals that Michelle was eventually diagnosed with extremely rare desmoid tumors, which she describes as ‘odd and curious beasts’ that are non-cancerous but spread in the same way.”
O’Donnell said Rounds had surgery in June and is “getting stronger every day.” She indicated she will fight to raise awareness about the disease, and said the wedding will take place next summer.
