Michelle Rounds, fiancee of Rosie O’Donnell, is recovering after undergoing surgery for desmoid tumors, according to news reports.
People magazine reported that Rounds had the surgery in June. The couple has decided to postpone their wedding until next summer because of Rounds’s illness, O’Donnell wrote on her blog.
“Desmoid tumors, odd and curious beasts, strong and sneaky, a non cancer that acts cancerous,” O’Donnell wrote on her blog. “Only 900 cases a year in the US, an orphan disease — beyond rare, only 3 people per million get this, michelle is one of them.”
