Erin Andrews kept her battle with cervical cancel so secret life that she didn’t even miss a day of work on the football field, although she did miss a few days of Dancing with the Stars. Just as Erin was awarded $55 million in her stalker case she also learned she has cervical cancer in October 2016. Soon after she went in for surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Within days of her surgery she was back on the football field and told no colleagues of her issue. “Should I have been standing for a full game five days after surgery? Let’s just say the doctor didn’t recommend that,” Andrews told Sports Illustrated magazine. “But just as I felt during my trial, sports were my escape. I needed to be with my crew.”

Erin didn’t wan to be looked at any different especially after her stalker case. “Throughout my career, all I’ve ever wanted is to just fit in. That I had this extra baggage with the scandal, I didn’t want to be any different. I felt that way about being sick too. I don’t want players or coaches to look at me differently.”
