Fortunately, the blonde beauty's husband, Alan Hamel, is there for her amid these scary times.

"My cancer is a disease that affected my whole family and once it hit me in my 20’s, Alan and I got even closer and every moment of every day was precious. We have not spent even one day apart in over 42 years. That’s the big upside of my cancer," she continued. "My son refers to our relationship as functionally co-dependent.

Last year, Somers revealed how she manages to stay healthy in her 70s.

"I eat only organic food," she shared. "It’s really hard for me to eat food that’s not organic because I had cancer. So everything that I use needs to be toxic-free, including my haircare, skincare, makeup, and household cleaning products – there’s not a single chemical in my house."
