- Trista Sutter went on Instagram to reveal that her husband Ryan has a mystery illness.
- Thankfully Ryan doesn’t have cancer, but they still need to find an answer.
Former Bachelorette Trista Sutter and husband Ryan Sutter pretty much have had a fairytale romance. After meeting and falling in love on the very first season of The Bachelorette in 2003, the couple have managed keep their marriage rock solid for the past 17 years. Sadly, the two have recently fallen on difficult times, though—in an emotional Instagram post, Trista revealed that Ryan has been struggling with a mystery illness for the past few months.
This guy…my rock, my best friend, my hero, my love…is struggling. Not everyday, and not to the point that he can’t work or cook or exercise or be with family, but enough. We’ve been struggling for months. Struggling to get answers. And this week, we got an answer that would normally be the best answer of all good answers. We found out that Ryan doesn’t have cancer. A HUGE relief…without a doubt, especially after fighting to find a doctor to take symptoms that lined up with lymphoma seriously and advocating for the scans to rule it out. But part of us was wanting a diagnosis. Wanting to be able to fight for him to be cured instead of fighting for an answer. How messed up is that? Don’t worry, I know. It’s messed up. But, that’s where we are. In a holding pattern of not knowing. And believe me…I know it could be worse, so for that, I am thankful. Thankful to not have to be separated from a loved one who is dying due to COVID. Thankful to not have 2 children with a cancer diagnosis. Thankful to have each other and health insurance and jobs and a home and food on the table and healthy family members and all the things that make this life struggle-free.
Before concluding her message, she asked her followers to be understanding of her situation.
If I’m not posting or answering emails or emotional or disconnected, please remember that everyone is struggling in some way, behind closed doors. We are young-ish and blessed, but not immune. We lived a fairy tale on TV and have a great life for all intents and purposes, but answers would be nice. So, I’m going to keep praying for answers and am hopeful that if you are the praying type, that you’ll think of Ryan when the time comes to send up a message. 🙏🏼❤️
