Kym Douglas grateful to return to ‘Home And Family’ after cancer diagnosis
IBTimes – She departed the talk show at the end of May after being diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing surgery.
In the months since, she’s been recovering from the operation while receiving chemotherapy treatments.
In September she got back to work, which she said on Facebook made her “realize how fortunate I am to have a job to come back to after my treatment [because] not everyone gets that.”
Douglas shared some photos, along with a comment about her recent experiences.
“Getting back to work was literally like medicine in my veins,” Douglas wrote. “On this #LaborDay Holiday, I realize how much my work fills me up and the joy it brings to my life. I hope you will tune in tmrw to join the fun and laughter.”
Douglas received many words of encouragement during her time away from the show, which, she said, helped her a lot during this experience.
“Thankful and Grateful are understatements as to how I feel being back at work @homeandfamilytv,” she wrote. “The prayers, notes, cards and texts I received from all who watch, were immensely important to my recovery and healing.” Read more.
