SIMONE SMITH'S AMAZING FIGHT FOR LIFE

But it hasn't always been easy. LL and Simone are doubly thankful for every day they share since she was diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer - stage 3 chondrosarcoma—in her right tibia in 2004.

Simone beat her cancer and has since been active, along with her husband, in campaigns supporting the American Cancer Society.

LL COOL J REVEALS HOW HE MET WIFE SIMONE 

Rapper LL Cool J spilled the beans during an interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," about how he met his wife Simone.

LL revealed that he was driving down the block in his mother's car in 1987 when he stopped to say hello to a friend. The man asked him if he wanted to meet his cousin, and LL was about to decline when he saw the 17-year-old Simone.

"I looked over and said 'Oh yeah, I'll meet your cousin.'" he said.

He was just 19, and after dating for eight years, the two were married in 1995. They have just celebrated 24 years of marriage, and 32 years of love.
