Camille Grammer opened up to Us Weekly about how she stays positive while battling her second bout with cancer — just three days after undergoing surgery to remove cancer cells.

The reality star appeared at the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 8 premiere party on Friday, December 15, at the Doheny Room in Los Angeles and spoke about her brave fight: “It’s a squamous cell carcinoma and it could show up on the skin or in your lungs, it could be in the back of your throat, in your vagina, in your labia, there’s many places it could show up. I had surgery three days ago and I’m out and about but I’m still healing and I’m still in some pain.”

When asked how she remains so positive, the Club MTV alum told Us, “Oh, my mom. My mom is fighting her third cancer and she’s an inspiration to me, she’s so strong. I think I get my strength from her and my knowledge of knowing how to handle and deal with cancer. We’re both there for each other. I think keeping your family close and having them support you helps you so much, and also having a good man in your life, and I have a lot of great friends too.” (The former model announced her engagement to boyfriend David C. Meyer in October.)

Grammer announced she was battling skin cancer on Thursday, December 14, by sharing a photo of herself on recovering in the hospital. She also encouraged fans to get annual checkups.

As previously reported, the 49-year-old reality TV personality was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in 2013. After undergoing a radical hysterectomy in October of that year, Grammer announced she had completed chemotherapy and radiation in January 2014.

Fans will get to see Grammer back in action on the upcoming season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “I’m a friend this year, so I’m on the show,” she told Us. “The drama comes in a few episodes … even though I’m just a friend, it doesn’t mean I’m not immune to any kind of drama or arguments, so we’ll see. I can’t say too much!”
