It takes quite a bit of courage to do what Erin Andrews did. In a new Sports Illustrated interview she revealed that she was diagnosed with cervical cancer just six months after her stalker lawsuit ended last year. She admits that she didn’t follow doctors’ orders when she decided to cover a Cowboys-Packers game just five days after undergoing her first surgery for the disease on October 11. “Should I have been standing for a full game five days after surgery? Let’s just say the doctor didn’t recommend that,” Andrews says. “But just as I felt during my trial, sports were my escape. I needed to be with my crew.” She found out on November 17 that she wouldn’t need to undergo chemotherapy or radiation.
