Clifford is a mother of three and always knew that she had fibroids. But what she didn’t know is that she had a tumor growing inside of her. 

She first noticed her swollen belly after she saw herself on TV. But she opted to ignore just thinking that as result of her middle-age spread, and her being the mother of three children. However, she called Dr. Shukri David, after she faced several problems regarding her stomach and bladder. She was called by the doctor immediately.

Further, an ultrasound revealed that Clifford had a fibroid tumor about the size of a football and several smaller ones which were on the verge to destroy her kidneys, so that had to be removed immediately.

Clifford also took it to Facebook on March 17, to tell her fans and viewers about her condition. On a post, she stated that she is not leaving WXYZ or retiring, rather, she is only going to be away for a while because of her health situation.
