She shared the news five months after the diagnosis. After learning about her ailment from her gynecologist, she said,
“Uh, what?’ That was what went through my mind. It was football season and when you hear from your doctor on a Saturday it’s not good. It’s like, ‘Oh boy what’s this text coming in?’ I think a whole numbness went all over my body. I couldn’t feel my arms for a hot second, I ran out of the conference room I was in, took the call, got my family on it, and I was just like, ‘What are you saying?’ I do remember saying that to my gyno at the time, saying, ‘What am I supposed to tell my family?”

More than anything, she became sad that she would be unable to work that year and was going to miss Dancing with the Stars and Super Bowl. She underwent two surgeries in the course of treatment. However, she was determined to not slow down, getting right back to work with the support of her husband. She returned to cover a matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys just three days after she underwent surgery following her diagnosis.
Erin loved Jarret’s competitive mode and confidence that they can beat cancer. She said,
“I think if anything it got us stronger. He went to a lot of doctors’ meetings, saw a lot of diagrams and sat there. And this is a guy who cares about winning face-offs and winning penalty kills and so forth, and he was like, ‘We got this, we got this.’ It made conversations about having babies very real and candid for him and our life and everything. So he was amazing.”
