Personal Life

Shannon married Sheldon Bream on December 30, 1995. The couple met at Liberty College, and when Sheldon was 24 years old, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor was removed during a nine-hour surgery, and during a 2020 interview on Fox Nation's "Ride To Work," Shannon stated, "The tumor was clean. Got that out. Luckily benign. It was wonderful news. But he had a complication in that all of the swelling from the brain surgery crushed some of his facial nerves and he ended up with severe paralysis." Doctors had told Sheldon that if he ever regained control of his facial muscles, the first sign would be his mouth moving. A few weeks before Shannon and Sheldon got married, Shannon saw the corner of Sheldon's mouth move while they were sitting at Pizza Hut. Bream said of that moment, "And so we jumped around a Pizza Hut and it was wonderful. It was just so exciting because then from there, he slowly began to recover. And it still took a while. But thank God he's good. No more return of that."
