Being married has its ups and downs, and LL Cool J and his longtime time spouse have weathered some.

According to COUNTRY LIVING, Smith met Simone 1987, and after eight years of dating, the two made it official in 1995. In 2004, doctors diagnosed Simone with stage 3 chondrosarcoma, a rare bone cancer.

At the time, she had to undergo a 15-hour surgery and a two year recovery period.

Through it all, Simone had her spouse by her side as the Hollywood star helped her fight cancer. Once in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Todd opened up about the trying times as he said:

"You don’t abandon someone in that fox hole. You gotta be there in that fox hole with them."

After the couple's encounter with cancer, they went on to create an organization called "Beat Cancer Like a Boss."

The Smiths used the platform to reach out and help people. The two once sat with ET ONLINE, where they shared details about their struggles with battling cancer.
