Oh this is SO sad!
While she hasn't confirmed anything yet in an official statement, Rosie O'Donnell has just posted a poem on her official blog, writing about what seems to be her girlfriend Michelle Rounds' diagnosis with aggressive fibromatoses, specifically a Desmoid tumor.
It seems their wedding has been rescheduled, as she writes that Michelle is recovering from a surgery she had in June.
Take a look at an excerpt from the poem:
odd and curious beasts
strong and sneaky
a non cancer that acts cancerous
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
she is recovering from surgery in june
getting stronger every day
we have joined the fight against this disease
raising money and awareness
we had to postpone our wedding
re scheduled for next summer
in lieu of gifts -
we ask for donations
We wish Michelle a speedy recovery and hope that everything is alright!!!
