Deborah was Al's rock during his diagnosis in 2020, and recently opened up about the strength of their relationship and how they supported each other in a joint interview with People magazine.

Deborah said: "My heart just sank to my toes. Because it never even occurred to me that there was anything serious. When he said, 'It's cancer,' I just lost it."
