Just under five months after Simon went public with his health battle, the former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member and father of three took to his Instagram page, where he offered an update to his fans and followers in the form of a collage taken before, during, and after his treatment.
“Metamorphosis: Before, During and after treatment. Can you tell which is which?” Simon asked in the caption of his pics.
Following the sharing of the post, Simon confirmed that the photo on the left was taken before his treatment and that the one on the right was taken immediately after.
Also in the comments section of his post, Simon received an encouraging message from Tamra.
“Simon. I know it’s been hard on your body. But [you’re] strong and gonna [beat] this!” she wrote.
“Yes I am,” Simon agreed. “Using my spirit as well as modern medicine.”
After Simon went public with his cancer diagnosis in February, Tamra revealed that the dire situation actually brought their family, including her and her daughter, [Sidney Barney], and Simon and his son, [Spencer Barney], who were previously estranged, back together.
“I’m talking to Sidney and Spencer’s going to see his dad on Saturday… I talk to [Simon’s] girlfriend and text with her every single day because she’s a mess too. She’s his caretaker and I’m like, ‘Do you need food, do you need anything? Just let me know.’”
Just last month, during a Q&A on her Instagram Stories, Tamra responded to a fan who wanted to know how Simon was doing amid his cancer battle.
“He finished treatment a few months ago and getting stronger everyday. He’s staying positive! We are praying he kicked cancer’s a** but we don’t know yet,” Tamra revealed at the time.
One month prior, Tamra told another fan Simon is “staying positive and [convinced] he will” beat the disease.
