Debbie started undergoing chemotherapy in August. At the time, she told ET that she was undergoing six treatments of chemo once every three weeks, followed by radiation every day for five weeks. Debbie said that her 18-year-old daughter, Paris, had been a tremendous support throughout her cancer battle.
"She's my rock, she's amazing," Debbie -- who also mothered a son, 19-year-old Prince, with the late Michael Jackson -- told ET when we spoke with her again in October. "She's been with me the whole time. She was there. First phone call, [it] took her 30 seconds [to reach out] when she found out."
"For her to kiss my bald head," she added, "[her love] is pretty unconditional."
