After beating it the first time, her cancer again returned in 2016. In February of the year, she found that there was a new tumor, which needed to be removed via surgery. It was a rare form of melanoma cancer which again spread after three months of operation.

Holly Rowe Cancer At Age 48 Impacted Her Hairstyle?

Holly's burgeoning career hit the first hitch when her health deteriorated in 2015; she was diagnosed with cancer.

Despite not having a slumping impact on her career, chemotherapy has taken its toll on her hair. She often posts on her social sites regarding her hairstyle.

In July 2016, she let go her hair cutting it bald and expressed a sense of support to her fellow cancer patients via a Facebook video, writing, 

"Had to have a little fun with this and laugh so I don't cry!!!" "Much love to all cancer patients going thru this. Let's be strong together.  ‪#‎baldisbeautiful‬ ‪#‎baldystrong‬ ‪#‎nohairdon‬'tcare ‪#‎okicarealittle‬"

It was a brave act on her part to be able to laugh and giggle with the machine running on her head, changing her beautiful hairstyle to one she had been told would be a better fit while battling the horrible disease. She somehow managed to look even more lively soon after going hairless.

Like you did expect from the charismatic and lively reporter, she later didn't like the short hairstyle that reminded her of the weak condition of hers.  

She took to Twitter sharing about the problems of a short hairstyle in January 2017. With a picture of all messed up hair, she stated that despite others' claims about having short hair easy to maintain, she found it hard.

Is She Married And Has Husband To Show?

The presence of her son signals about her being a married woman. However, there have been confusions regarding her married life as she has not delved into the details about her husband. 

Speculations about her divorce from her husband has had its fair share in the gossip columns. Despite plenty of interest to grasp her married life and husband's identity, she has not flinched an inch and is reluctant to discuss her married life in public. 

Until and unless she decides the time is right to front up the media and open about he husband rumors, the rumor mills will keep on grinding.
