Talking with the outlet, Barney said, "And to speak out about it so others can see how I've taken this fight on with optimism, and the good this has ultimately brought my life."
Simon further added, "I think everything happens for a reason, I think your destiny is pretty much set for you, and you're here to learn lessons. This has been a tough lesson for me. And I'm hoping it can be a lesson for others, too."
The former RHOC star said he first had a swollen salivary gland, and after a diagnose, it was found it was cancerous and is already on stage three.
Barney is currently going through aggressive radiation and chemotherapy following his diagnosis and explained it's the most painful experience rather than the disease itself.

Despite all the lows in his life, Barney seems hopeful that he will recover from his diagnosis. Even doctors have confirmed the treatment is going well.
All he needs to do is, stay positive, and he seems to be doing pretty okay too. But again, it's cancer on stage 3, so we can't really say at this time.
Barney further added, "Listen, if it's my time to die, it's my time to die," Barney said. "I've lived a good life, and you can't do anything about that. But if it's not, then I'm going to fight this. I'm going to fight it with a smile and a laugh, and I'm going to beat it. It's whatever my destiny is."
Well, it's undoubtedly a good way to take your life, more importantly, while you are fighting a life-threatening disease. We wish him all the strength to overcome his hard times and disease.
