Kelly Osbourne Shares How Robin Williams Helped Her Mom Beat Cancer

Kelly Osbourne recently opened up to fans about her mother's struggle to find hope during her cancer battle several years ago.

During the Osbourne family's first podcast episode, Kelly and brother Jack reflect on the kindness that Robin Williams showed their family and how laughter made Sharon regain strength and helped bring their family closer together.

Many fans will remember Sharon's battle with colon cancer in the early 2000's.

"It was not a very fun time at all for anyone. Probably the least amount of fun for Mom," Jack Osbourne shared the inaugural episode of the Osbourne family's podcast .

Kelly agreed, explaining that Sharon had given up hope after her hair began to fall out during chemo.

"Mom was lying in this bedroom that she had curtained off. It was pitch black,” Kelly recalled.

"She hadn’t gotten out of bed for like a week. Mom’s dog had to go to the hospital because she was dehydrated. Mom was dehydrated. And we couldn’t get her to go back to finish the chemo.”

Kelly then shared how her dad Ozzy thought up a brilliant idea to cheer his wife up.

"Dad said laughter is the best medicine and organized for Robin [Willians] to come over and make Mom laugh. And he just dropped everything. Came over to the house. Got in bed with Mom!"

She continued: "I just remember sitting at the bottom of the stairs and we went from crying, not knowing what to do, to peeing ourselves laughing because we could hear Mom upstairs in her room laughing with Robin."

"The next day it changed everything and Mom went back to chemo.”

Sharon couldn’t say enough great things about the late comedian and his good deed, calling him "one of the nicest genuine people that you could ever meet."
