In October, Clea began radiation treatment. “I had some starts and stops,” she wrote. “I had to deflate my left breast expander so the radiation beam could hit my right side, I had COVID (what in the actual….), nighttime sessions when no one was in the hospital, gala gown changes in the patient dress room, etc. But here I sit, on Nov 22nd, 9 months after my diagnosis – and I’m cancer free.”
The Get Organized with The Home Edit star, who appears on the Netflix series with her cofounder and BFF Joanna Teplin, also noted there were “many silver linings” throughout her journey, including having her mother move in with her in April.
“It’s crazy to say this, but we had the most special time?” she added. “I never imagined at 40 years old I would live with my mom again, and I loved every minute.”
In addition, Clea—who is mom to daughter Stella, 11, and son Sutton, 8—wrote she “never had this amount of time with John and the kids,” noting, “It’s a time in my life I will treasure, even though it was extremely difficult for all of us.”
At the end of her message, Clea thanked her followers for their support. “As my treatment journey comes to a close (although, it will never be over!), I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart,” she wrote. “The outpouring of love will stay with me always.”
