Shannon Bream Husband Brain Tumor
Fox News anchor Shannon opened up about a difficult time in her and her husband’s lives together: after doctors discovered that he had a brain tumor.
“It was a complete shocker,” Shannon said on Fox Nation’s “Ride To Work.”
“He was a college athlete, very healthy and strong,” the “Fox News @ Night” anchor told Fox Nation’s Abby Hornacek “And he’d had an ear problem — like a ringing in his ear — for a long time.”
“They treated him for everything, ear infections, all kinds of stuff,” she continued. “And they said, ‘Well, we need to rule one thing out. It’s a longshot.’ But the test came back and they said ‘You’ve got a brain tumor. It’s about the size of a golf ball and it’s got to come out.'”
Sheldon Bream was 24 years old when he received the diagnosis.
“It just kind of threw our whole world into a tailspin,” Shannon recalled.
Sheldon underwent a nine-hour surgery to remove the tumor.
“The tumor was clean. Got that out. Luckily benign. It was wonderful news,” she remembered. “But he had a complication in that all of the swelling from the brain surgery crushed some of his facial nerves and he ended up with severe paralysis.”
