Ashley Monroe recently revealed that she has been diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer.
The country artist wrote on Instagram that she is about to undergo chemotherapy to treat waldenstrom macroglobulinemia — a type of cancer that causes severe anemia.
“I start chemo tomorrow. Seems like such a negative thing to say. Until I flip that doom feeling on its head and think, wow, I’m thankful I have an illness that is VERY live with-able,” Monroe wrote. “I’m thankful there IS a treatment that actually works to fight what is causing harm to my body.”
Monroe added that she is thankful to friends and family who have gathered around her praying and sending flowers and letting her lean on them during this “super weird chapter of my life.”
The singer said she believes in the power of prayer and love in healing all on a deeper level.
