Elvis Duran’s Husband Didn’t Languish in Despair Upon His Cancer Diagnosis
Duran is openly gay. His husband, Islander Alex Carr, is a household name in the borough for his charitable work with the Staten Island Zoo and The Pride Center of Staten Island. In November 2022, he revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer.
Carr has made a decision to gather money to establish the Florina Cancer Center at Staten Island University Hospital in order to better the lives of those fighting health problems like him rather than wallow in hopelessness over the cancer treatments that lie ahead of him.
He took advantage of what he knew about cancer to help all residents of Staten Island, the borough with the highest cancer rate, over the whole month of November.
Carr talked about the advancement of his cancer diagnosis in a social media post. The cancerous testicle was removed, and it was replaced with an implant that was a plastic ball filled with saline.
He was reassured by the doctor that there is a 98% to 99% likelihood that his particular type of cancer will be successfully treated. Carr is expected to begin chemotherapy at Staten Island University Hospital, part of Northwell Health.
