Last year FOX NFL sideline reporter Erin Andrews was diagnosed with cervical cancer following a routine checkup.

“When you hear the word cancer, you fear the worst,” said Andrews’ father, Steve. “When it’s your child, you think to yourself, you think, ‘God: Take me, not her.’ She has been through enough. She is just getting her life back.”

Erin Andrews learned of her diagnosis before a Week 3 game, worked the contest, and then flew home for surgery in early October.

Two days later she was back in Green Bay to shoot a feature on Jordy Nelson.

“Should I have been standing for a full game five days after surgery? Let’s just say the doctor didn’t recommend that,” Andrews told Kaplan. “But just as I felt during my trial, sports were my escape. I needed to be with my crew.”

She underwent additional surgery on November 1st and has since received the phone call she had been waiting for: She was in the clear. She would not require radiation or chemotherapy.

Erin Andrews will cover the Super Bowl on February 5th.
