The 50-year-old former talk show host suffered a heart attack earlier this month and Michelle was recently diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a rare disease. They decided to marry in private on June 9 before Michelle‘s first surgery.
“We married in private before her surgery. Just the two of us,” Rosie shared on her blog. “When we are both well enough, [we] will have the wedding of are dreams, surrounded by those we cherish. Thankful for the love and support so many have given us during these trying times.”
Rosie and Michelle hope to raise awareness for those affected by Desmoid tumors. The couple will be matching all donations made to Michelle’s DTRF donation page and Rosie is also selling some of her paintings on eBay and will match the sale price of those as well. All proceeds will go to DTRF.org.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
