Kris did develop a cancerous bone tumor a year after her parents’ divorce. Thankfully, the cancer didn’t spread. She had to undergo surgery to have the tumor removed. Afterwards she was declared completely healthy. Kris’ mother did remarry a few years later to a man called Harry Shannon. They moved to Oxnard, California. Harry’s business partner ended up running away with the company’s money. Forcing the family to move back to San Diego.
Kris graduated from Clairemont High School. Despite going to school she declared that her interest lay in “getting out in the world” and marrying and being a mother versus going to college.
