Rosie O'Donnell is always making others smile, so let's send some of those good vibes back her way.

The 50-year-old announced on her website Friday that fiancée Michelle Rounds has a serious illness that's caused them to postpone their wedding. Rounds is suffering from desmoid tumors, which O'Donnell described as "odd and curious beasts, strong and sneaky a non cancer that acts cancerous."

She explained that the illness is "beyond rare," with "only 900 cases a year in the U.S."

Fortunately, Rounds is "recovering from surgery in June [and] getting stronger every day."

Because of this illness though, O'Donnell and Rounds, who announced their engagement in December, had to reschedule their wedding until to next summer. In lieu of gifts, they're asking for donations to the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation.

She added that "good thoughts, wishes [and] prayers" are "all welcomed." We're certainly sending lots of them her way.
