Nobility and journalist. Antoni Stanislaus Albert Radziwill was the son of Prince Stanislaus Radziwill and Caroline Lee Bouvier. He was the nephew of John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and cousin to John jr. and Caroline Bouvier Kennedy. When he was diagnosed with testicular cancer it was his cousin and best friend who helped him through the most painful times. Anthony's wife Carole remembers,"John is Oscar to Anthony's Felix. If Anthony is the angel, the well-mannered school boy, John is the scamp…Watching them, I can see they can't stand too close to each other and can't bear to be too far apart."
One night, during the thick of Anthonys battle, John came straight from a party, still in his tuxedo he sat at the bedside, gripping Anthonys hand. "John was made for the big moments, and he always pulled it out," Carole says. "And this was a big moment.John started singing a song, humming at first and then started singing," Carole says. "Carolyn and I didn't know what the song was, but it was a children's nursery rhyme. And then Anthony recognized it. It was called "Teddy Bears Picnic"…It was a song that John's mom would sing to them when they were 11 or 12-year-old boys,when they thought they were big and she would sing this song to remind them that they were still little boys." In her book Carole Radziwill writes:"the doctors think that Anthony will die tonight, and John takes him, by singing that song, to the safest place he knew."Anthony lost his battle with cancer only three weeks after he lost his cousin and best friend.Anthony was surrounded by those who loved him: His wife Carole, mother Lee and sister Anna Christina. He was laid to rest August 13, 1999.
