Kim Kardashian gave an emotional speech at the Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation Ball in New York City about losing her father to cancer eight years ago.
The reality star’s father, Robert, died at the age of 59, weeks after being diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2003. “Not a day goes by when I don’t think about him,” the New York Post quoted the reality star as saying.
“I wish we knew a little more about the disease. My dad didn’t really want to tell anyone he was sick. He didn’t tell his parents until like a week before he passed away. He was the kind of guy (who) never wanted to go to the doctor to see what was wrong, because he hated doctors — sorry, all the doctors out there,” she added.
