He Was Diagnosed with Cancer in 2003

Abrams suffered from a major health issue when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer in July 2003.

Later, the ABC News journalist successfully became cancer-free after his tumor was removed from his testicles and lymph nodes from his abdomen by surgery.

In September 2004, the media personality released a statement and announced the news publicly for the first time.

Today I spoke publicly, for the first time about what had been a very private matter... my bout with testicular cancer.

He added, "Until now, it is a topic I had only discussed with a handful of friends and family. But for Sean Kimerling, I think I would have kept it that way."

That being said, the television presenter is yet to confirm if he is already married to his partner or not. Not only that, Abrams is a little more private about her, as he rarely shows her even on his social media. In contrast, he often posts pictures with his son.

According to the New York Times, the family of three resides in Manhattan.
