ASHLEY MONROE revealed yesterday that she has a rare form of blood cancer. It’s called “waldenstrom macroglobulinemia” and it’s treatable. She’s starting chemotherapy today.
She announced it on Instagram and included photos of herself with friends like Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley . . . plus pics of her husband, former Major League pitcher John Danks, and their three-year-old son Dalton.
As for the symptoms, she said, quote, “It’s causing my body to be severely anemic, and I feel it. [But] I’m thankful I have an illness that is very ‘live with-able.’ I’m thankful there IS a treatment that works to fight what is causing harm to my body.”
She’ll take all the prayers you can give, but NOT advice. Quote, “I would greatly appreciate if no one gave me any unsolicited advice or medical opinions. I’ve done my research and have amazing doctors. I’ve weighed every option.
“I DO believe in the power of prayer. I also believe in the power of love healing us all on an even deeper level. I love you all big. Here I go.”
