Trisha Goddard was diagnosed with secondary cancer 19 months ago

OHMYGOSSIP — Trisha Goddard’s cancer has returned.
The 66-year-old TV star was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, and she has gone public 19 months after her secondary cancer was detected by accident in July 2022, and vowed to “keep enjoying” her life.
She told HELLO! magazine: “It’s not going to go away.
“And with that knowledge comes grief, and fear. But I must keep enjoying what I have always enjoyed.”
Trisha struggled with keeping the diagnosis secret.
She admitted: “I can’t lie; I can’t keep making up stories.
“It gets to a stage, after a year and a half, when keeping a secret becomes more of a burden than anything else.”
She added: “I’m nervous.
“But it needed to be done.”
The CNN reporter – who presents a weekly show on talkTV – doesn’t want to become “a poster girl for cancer” and hates being told she is brave or that she is “battling” a terminal illness.
She said: “It’s not who I am. It’s not why I’m here.”
“Also, I didn’t want to read words like ‘dying’ and ‘terminal’ or ‘battling’. Or ‘inspirational’, because it’s all [redacted].”
Trisha – who is best known for hosting her now-defunct talk show ‘Trisha’ in the UK and ‘The Trisha Goddard Show’ in the US – lives in Connecticut with her husband Allen.
She is extremely active but was concerned something wasn’t right when she started getting injured during exercise.
Whilst running upstairs at home, she slipped and took a nasty tumble.
She recalled: “I was upside down, my legs behind me, and clinging on to the banister. I went to move my leg – and I’m not a wimp – but I’d never felt pain like it. I now know it was shattered.”
Unable to move, she was able to contact her neighbour and was taken to hospital where her spouse joined her.
It was then she was dealt with the news that she had cancer cells and a tumour.
Allen shared: “She was in acute pain.
“Then a young resident – like a junior doctor – came in and said: ‘Oh, it looks as though you broke your femur and smashed your right hip, which is full of cancer cells. And you have a tumour. It doesn’t look good.'”
Trisha added: “That was the first I heard that the cancer had come back. And the first thing I asked was: ‘Am I going to die?'”
As well as the cancer in the hip, Trisha had partial hip replacement and was fitted with a titanium femur.
Trisha underwent daily radiation for three weeks and weekly chemotherapy for four and a half months.
Speaking on the options for cancer patients in the US, she said: “When you go to the doctors in the States, there’s a choice of three little boxes you tick for treatment of stage 4 cancer.
“One is cure, one is life-prolonging and one is palliative. There’s that awful feeling when you’re sitting there thinking: ‘Which one?’ And mine is life-prolonging.”
