Around 1989 he was diagnosed with testicular cancer, undergoing treatment which left him sterile, but in apparent remission. But shortly before his wedding, new tumors emerged. Radziwill battled metastasizing cancer throughout his five years of marriage, his wife serving as his primary caretaker through a succession of oncologists, hospitals, operations and experimental treatments. The couple lived in New York, and both Radzwill and his wife tried to maintain their careers as journalists between his bouts of hospitalization. During this period, Radziwill became especially close to his aunt Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who was also terminally ill with cancer.

Radziwill was also close to his first cousin John F. Kennedy, Jr.. In 1996, during Kennedy's secret wedding ceremony in Georgia to Carolyn Bessette, Anthony Radziwill was the best man. The cousins' wives became best friends. During one episode of Radziwill's illness he slipped into unconsciousness and was believed to be near death. Kennedy was summoned to his hospital bedside from a White House gala, embraced his cousin and sang him nursery rhymes from their shared childhood. Remarkably, Radziwill revived, joined in the singing, and rallied enough to be released from the hospital. After Kennedy broke his leg in the spring of 1994, the two couples shared a summer home while the husbands convalesced and the wives nursed them. But as Radziwill's condition continued to deteriorate, Kennedy tried to convince Carole Radziwill to help him face his imminent death through open dialogue. Unable to bring herself to engage her husband, she and Kennedy quarreled. Later, she would write that not once during the course of his disease did Anthony Radziwill ever acknowledge that it was likely to prove fatal. Since that was how he preferred to handle it, she acquiesced. "Anthony had the cancer, and I took care of it," she would later say. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Jr. ...

On July 16, 1999, Radziwill awoke in the middle of the night to the sound of his wife talking frantically on the telephone in another room. On entering the kitchen he saw that she was carrying on a distraught conversation, and that she had covered the walls with notes the way reporters do when gathering facts in a breaking news story. Listening and reading the notes, he learned that his cousin, John Kennedy, Kennedy's wife Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, and the latter's sister Lauren Bessette, were several hours overdue at the Martha's Vineyard airport following their departure from New Jersey's Essex County Airport in a small aircraft piloted by Kennedy. As he read his wife's futile efforts to track their whereabouts and reach family members, Radziwill crumpled to the floor weeping, knowing that his cousin and best friend had died.

Strangely, the crisis rallied Radziwill's strength. His wife had been unable to get through to Kennedy's sister, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg at a midwest retreat, and feared she would hear of the missing plane first from television or prying reporters. Radziwill got on the phone and persuaded the local sheriff to send deputies out with an urgent message. When his cousin finally called, Radziwill broke the news to her. As executor of John Kennedy's large estate, Radziwill was called upon to leave bed and home to tend to business over the next few days, and to participate in the memorial service held at sea once the bodies were recovered. His wife sank into depression after the funerals, and Radziwill confronted her, "We have to get on with our lives!" The following week, he too died. He was forty years old.

Short history of the Radziwill Family by Peter Paul Bajer (4736 words)
Just like other Radziwills, he was famous for the support given to his relatives: he did not fail to watch over the interests of his Calvinist cousins, despite being renown for his opposition to the heretics.
Those Radziwills who decided to stay in Poland despite prosecution and hardship faced by all 'enemies of the working class', were able to adapt to the new political situation with perseverance and resourcefulness.
Radziwill's exclusivity is also sustained by the upholding of a patriotic/religious ideology associated with the Polish aristocratic circles and based on the principle of noblesse oblige-binding them personally to an intensive service towards the common good.
