Joni Eareckson Tada shared “miraculous” health news, announcing she’s cancer-free after being diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time in late November.
On Tuesday, the author, speaker and founder of Joni and Friends shared a photo of herself holding a sign reading, “All Clear” on her website and Facebook page.
“Proverbs 25:25 says, ‘Good news from far away is like cold water to a thirsty soul.’ That perfectly describes Ken (Tada’s husband) and me today,” she captioned the photo.
Tada said that she and her husband were prepared to “gladly take whatever from the hand of God, even if it were from his left hand.”
“But the Lord was gracious and heard the desire of our hearts – last Friday’s PET scan shows that my second tumor that was removed last November… did not metastasize! Given the aggressive nature of that reoccurring cancer, this news is quite miraculous,” she wrote.
“So, THANK you for lifting us up before the Lord Jesus,” she continued. “For now, we have been spared of more cancer battles. We humbly realize that may well change in the future; but for today, for now, we are rejoicing in those wonderful words from my medical oncologist: ‘all clear!’ Onward and upward…”
Tada, 69, was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer eight years ago. After undergoing a mastectomy and chemotherapy treatment, she was declared cancer-free.
