Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has announced that she will begin radiation therapy at the end of March in a bid to ensure that her breast cancer does not return.

In a letter to supporters this week, Lotz, the 70-year-old daughter of famed evangelist Billy Graham, explained that it was their prayers that helped carry her through surgery and seven chemotherapy infusions over the last six-plus months.

“Praise God! Most of my battle with cancer has been won!” Lotz, who heads AnGeL Ministries, wrote. “Even as I have struggled with severe side-effects, I have experienced deep peace, unceasing joy, and great expectancy of blessing to come!”

However, Lotz explained that her battle against cancer is not yet over and solicited continued prayers.

“Now I face a month of daily radiation beginning around the end of this month,” she wrote. “I also will continue an infusion every three weeks until October 2019 to help [ensure] the cancer will not return. As so many of you know, cancer is a wicked disease. As God brings me to your mind, I would treasure your continued prayers.”

Lotz’s brother, Franklin Graham, who leads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, took to his Facebook page to solicit prayers for his sister.

“So many people have asked how my sister Anne Graham Lotz is doing as she undergoes treatment for cancer,” he wrote. “We thank God that she has finished her chemo and is scheduled to begin radiation in a couple of weeks.”
