Former “Real Housewife” Camille Grammer has been in remission from endometrial cancer for one year and is focusing on her job chairing the Foundation for Women’s Cancer.

Grammer, who quit “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” when she was diagnosed, told People magazine she was glad she left the Bravo reality series.

“I’m doing really well,” she told People. “I don't think I could have filmed going through that. There's just no way."

Grammer confirmed her remission to E! Online in January: “Overall, I'm happy. I'm fulfilled and I'm in a great place in life. I'm so happy I could show my daughter what it is to be a strong woman. With cancer, you never really feel like you're in the clear but I feel good and I have a sense that things are going to be OK. I'm relieved, I'm happy and I feel blessed."

Grammer, who is the ex-wife of actor Kelsey Grammer, has been open about her cancer battle, sharing with "The Doctors" in January that she first learned she was positive at age 35 for Lynch syndrome, "a genetic marker indicating she was at very high risk of developing certain types of cancer, including colorectal, endometrial, breast and ovarian cancer."

Add in a family history of cancer, including her mother who had stage 3 ovarian cancer, and Grammer told the show she began screenings and rejected the idea of doing a hysterectomy as a preventative measure.

But when she was diagnosed several years later with endometrial cancer, Grammer underwent the surgical procedure, as well as rounds of chemotherapy and radiation.

“I’m a survivor, and we’re going to raise awareness to help other women in our position to survive and beat this,” Grammer told the show.
