One of the biggest events of Jill Zarin’s summer is happening this weekend, but instead of preparing for her Luxury Luncheon in the Hamptons, which not to brag we were invited to, she’s in New York City by her husband Bobby’s side as he recovers from a recent procedure.

“His cancer took an unexpected turn,” Jill tells PEOPLE. “But he is not going down without a fight.”

In fact, Jill says Bobby is going to try his best to make it to the event on Saturday.

“I want everybody to show up on Saturday happy to celebrate Bobby because he is still with us and he is fighting,” she says.

“I love my Bobby so much,” she says, holding back tears. “On Saturday, we want to show him how much we love him by raising a lot of money for the International Thyroid Oncology Group, which is looking for cutting-edge treatments for advanced thyroid cancer.”

The former Real Housewives of New York star hasn’t left her husband’s side since he was admitted to the hospital and doing her best to cope with his latest health setback.

“I’m in shock,” she says. “I’m in physical shock. I’ve lost 8 lbs. already. He was doing well for a very, very long time. Then the cancer came back in his brain last fall, and since then, it’s been one thing after another.”

Bobby was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer back in 2009.

The AATRH is so thankful to have been invited to Jill’s luncheon this weekend, and we are devasted we can’t attend and help this incredible cause. More importantly, though, we wish Bobby a speedy recovery and hope that he continues to fight – we know he can beat this! Jill, Bobby, and Ally are in our thoughts and prayers!

    As a black woman who watches all the housewives and more that Bravo put out. I often wondered why it did not represent NY in its diversity…..so l am pleased with that decision. I just hope they don’t make a big deal about color or religion.
    Well done Bravo ! About time too l say.

      So awful

  • samael

    So sad when I heard about this – in the article Jill explains that Bobby now has – a type of cancer that is resistant to treatment.
    To deal with this as a family is so hard and devastating, I am so glad that Bobby and Jill have family to surround them and
    provide hugs,prayers and encouraging words.
