Kevin had surgery on November 26 and joked that it was like “surgery on a grape”. His family kept fans updated via his Twitter update letting people know when he was out of surgery. His daughter Illana had control of her dad’s phone and tweeted that “everything went smoothly”. From there, it was a waiting game to see if the surgeons got out all the cancer or if further treatment would be needed.
BB19 Castmates Support Kevin
From the get-go, Kevin Schlehuber’s closest pals from the CBS reality show, including Christmas Abbott (who’s got her own drama), were supportive. Christmas plus Elena Davis and Mark Jansen from BB20 sent well-wishes. Christmas called him a “thriver” and said she knew he would kick cancer’s ass. It sounds like that is exactly what he’s done.
