Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer announced Friday that doctors will be removing an entire lobe of her left lung after discovering a small nodule that contained some “dangerous irregularities,” and thanked supporters for their prayers ahead of the procedure.
The daughter of Tony Evans and founder of Going Beyond Ministries revealed on Facebook that three years ago doctors discovered a small nodule in her left lung.
“Several pulmonary specialists and I have watched it meticulously since then. This past summer, it was clear that something surgical needed to be done as the nodule had begun to grow and show signs of dangerous irregularities,” she said.
Shirer, who recently lost her mother, Lois Evans, to a rare form of cancer, said the past few months have been filled with “difficulty” for her family.
“For those reasons, the surgery was delayed but I cannot put it off any longer without jeopardizing my own health,” the mother-of-three said. “So this Monday, 1/13/20, surgeons will be removing an entire lobe of my left lung. Thank you for praying for me and for our entire family. We refuse to cave to fear, anxiety or a decrease in faith …because, well … ain’t nobody got time for that!”
“Through it all, we still believe God. We are trusting Him for a favorable outcome and that I will return to full health personally and full function in ministry,” she continued. “I’m incredibly grateful to you for lifting me, Jerry, our sons … and my entire family up to our Father. We are tired but we are holding steady.”
Shirer said she decided to open up about the upcoming procedure after word began to spread on social media.
