Eight Years of Legal Fight:
As big of a moment as it was for the former ESPN host, Erin Andrews had to face similarly scaled of events not so long ago. In fact, just in March 2016, her trial case came to an end. She had been fighting a case of stalking and intrusion related to her leaked nude pictures and videos in 2008.
It was leaked by a man named Michael Barrett who was arrested in 2009 trialed as guilty and given suitable punishment and fines. But Erin Andrews felt that the man deserved more for stalking her and the intrusion of her life in a way which could have severely harmed her life. So she had filed a lawsuit not only against him but Marriot Internationals (for port-foiling her to the hotel), Radisson Hotels (where the video was shot) and 5 other entities for negligence or participation in the crime.
She expressed years the fear, shame, and depression since the incident on several occasions. So, she must have felt a little lighter when the court’s verdict in her favor where she was be awarded 55 million dollars to her 75 million dollar request.

Erin Andrews’ Battle Against Cancer:
Recently in an interview in January 2017, Erin shared her battle against cancer which no one knew about and came out victorious as a survivor.
In June 2016, Erin went for a routine check up and four months later, following several check-up and tests the doctor - an oncologist called her up and concluded that she has cervical cancer. Further, the doctor told her that she needed a surgery too.
Erin strictly ordered her oncologist and demanded that she would not miss a game as it was Super Bowl.
“I’m not watching any football games at home. This is [Fox’s] Super Bowl year, and I’m not missing the Super Bowl.”
Her fiancé Jarret Stoll was by her side when she was battling against the life-threatening disease. And following her demands not to miss Super Bowl, he told Erin to focus on her health first.
Then Erin responded to Jarret, and she stated her strong desire to be part of Super Bowl as
“You wouldn’t miss a game,” she told Stoll, who played 13 seasons in the NHL. “You’d play through any injury, do whatever it takes to get back out there. That’s going to be me.”
Erin underwent surgery on October 11, 2016, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles. And two days after the surgery Erin flew to Green Bay to do the job which gives him solace and strength. During the tough times, Erin’s father Steve Andrew joined her daughter to support her.
Although Erin was recommended to rest, she did not listen as the sports was her only escape.
“Should I have been standing for a full game five days after surgery? Let’s just say the doctor didn’t recommend that, but just as I felt during my trial, sports were my escape. I needed to be with my crew.”
Cancer not only victimizes the patient but the word cancer spread terror in the life patient’s family as well. And Erin’s father Steve Andrew- a television journalist expressed his feelings as,
“When you hear the word cancer, you fear the worst, When it’s your child, you think to yourself, you think to God: Take me, not her. She has been through enough. She is just getting her life back.”
Two weeks after the surgery, without thinking about cancer, she engaged herself with football and Dancing with the stars. On November 1, 2016, she went to her oncologist for the further treatment, and on November 17 her doctor declared that she does not need radiation or chemotherapy.
Erin did not share being diagnosed with cancer with anyone, and she stated her reason as,
“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.”
Following the tragic incident of video leak and surviving cancer, Erin has come out as a stronger person than before. She is a role model for many people and her fans wish that she is blessed with a healthy life.
