Lysa TerKeurst Announces She is Cancer Free
New York Times bestselling Christian author and speaker Lysa TerKeurst has announced she is cancer free less than two weeks after undergoing a double mastectomy.
“Today my surgeon stood up in my follow up appointment and declared me CANCER FREE! They got it all out and nothing had spread,” the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries announced in a Facebook post Friday evening.
“I’m so thankful and relieved and deeply moved by the outpouring of prayers that have carried me through the surgery and first week of healing.”
TerKeurst said she still has a “couple of surgeries to go” and asked for continued prayers.
“There were a few complications but hearing ‘no chemo or radiation needed’ makes my complications pale in comparison,” she said. “And please keep praying for others still battling through tough stuff by lifting up some of the comments in my last post.”
She concluded: “I love you all so much. Now, I’m going to have a 10 second dance party with my daughter Ashley who just got in town! And then I’ll get back in bed-I promise mom!”
The Christian blogger also shared a photo bearing the simple phrase “Praise God!”
TerKeurst first announced she had been diagnosed with breast cancer in an October Facebook post.
