Her only focus was on raising her children as a youthful widow. After 12 years of staying single, Katie finally gave love another chance.

She told PEOPLE magazine how she reached out to her friend Molly for help in the matter. Molly introduced her to a banker named John Molner, and the rest was history. They kind of zinged quite readily as in love at first sight.

As her show’s segment, Couric recalled how Jay’s cancer diagnosis came as a shock. The doctors discovered a tumor as big as an orange, causing rectal blocking.

With a break in her voice, she remembered how she hoped it would be manageable rather than just incurable. Her little daughters used to ask her if their daddy would survive, and she never had a hopeful answer.
