Hamel opened up about his late wife's enduring struggle with cancer, stating, "Suzanne lived with cancer all her life." According to him, Somers faced health challenges from a young age.

In her 20s, she found herself in "the waiting room for cancer" after being diagnosed with two severe hyperplasia in her uterus. In her 30s, she contended with skin cancer on her back, then she battled breast cancer in her 50s. The "Step By Step" star also had a hysterectomy years ago.

Somers and her husband were together for more than four decades, their bond evident and enduring. One of the ways they maintained their connection was through gestures of affection: frequent hugs, the playful touch of Somers rubbing her husband's hair, and the comfort of holding hands as they slept. The actress had fondly recounted how Hamel would often remind her of her beauty, with their hands intertwined through the night.

Beyond the steadfast support of her husband, Somers had often attributed her longevity to the organic and chemical-free lifestyle she adopted.

Hamel's late wife was a proponent of bioidentical hormones and adopted a holistic approach to well-being. Prioritizing restful sleep, she committed to a diet of exclusively organic food and eliminated chemicals from her daily routine. Since her breast cancer diagnosis in 2000, she steered clear of food with chemicals and refrained from using beauty products that contained them.

In different Instagram posts this year, fans get a glimpse of the star's home, showing how modern and welcoming it is.

As Somers faced health challenges, the couple made the decision to prioritize her well-being over her professional commitments. A few years prior to her passing, Somers and her husband downsized, relocating to a home designed with elements conducive to healthy living.

Suzanne & Alan's Eco-Friendly Home

In May 2021, it was reported that Somers and Hamel had sold their Palm Springs, California home where they lived for 44 years since 1977. In the past, fans were treated to images of the decades-old Palm Springs mansion they parted with, including the original dipping pool, waterfall, and pond.

In 2007, the duo also owned a Malibu oceanfront cottage, but when a fire burned it down, they left the land empty before selling it for $12.03 million in 2016. According to a report, the couple had spent $10 million to acquire the mansion.
