Lee noted that her uncle 'is extremely compromised at 83,' as he 'just recovered from colon cancer' and deals with 'bad lungs' and 'a heart condition.'

The Santa Monica, California-born noted that her uncle 'has had other health issues for four years,' adding that she feels like 'the Grim Reaper [hunts] him and we fight tooth and nail to keep him here with us.'

The TV personality said of her uncle, 'There are just a few more bucket list items he wants to check off plus he's my Guy, my Go To - he and Aunt Peg asked me to move from Wisc to LA with them and I did, it changed my life.

'He helped me start my Business, got up at 3 am to fix me food when I can home from a grueling day of work on the road, he help me make a life and build on it and he is a mountain of a man in our family.'
