Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias has been battling a rare form of bone cancer since March and was recently informed by doctors that his cancer has spread and there’s nothing more they can do medically. 

“We have just learned that while the tumor in my dad’s sacrum has been responding to the chemotherapy, the area where the cancer metastasized has actually worsened,” daughter and CEO of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, Sarah Davis, shared with the ministry’s staff on Friday.

“His oncologist informed us that this cancer is very rare in its aggression and that no options for further treatment remain. Medically speaking, they have done all they are able,” she added.

Thank you for your faithful prayers. God is with us. ・・・ #Repost @rzimhq ・・・ Today RZIM’s CEO, @SarahDavisrzim, shared this update on @ravizacharias with our global staff. “Thank you so much for your faithful prayers for my dad and for my family in recent months as he has undergone back surgery and treatment for cancer. Truly, words fail to convey the depths of our gratitude for your many expressions of love. We have just learned that while the tumor in my dad’s sacrum has been responding to the chemotherapy, the area where the cancer metastasized has actually worsened. His oncologist informed us that this cancer is very rare in its aggression and that no options for further treatment remain. Medically speaking, they have done all they are able. Ravi, Margie, and Naomi are returning from Houston and will remain at home in Atlanta, where our family can be together for whatever time the Lord gives us. While we are full of so many emotions, we are also at peace, resting in the truth that God knows all and sees all and is sovereign and good.” . . .

Zacharias and his wife, Margaret, were in Houston, Texas, during the duration of his treatment. According to Davis, they will be returning home to “Atlanta, where our family can be together for whatever time the Lord gives us.”

The announcement comes just a day after Zacharias shared a picture of him and his wife on Instagram to celebrate their 48th wedding anniversary. He captioned the photo, “In sickness and in health.”

“Our 48th wedding anniversary looked different than the others, but three things remain the same: our love for each other, the gift of family and friends who shower us with kindness, and the abiding faithfulness of our great God,” he wrote.

Thanks to everyone who sent greetings and words of encouragement to Margie and me on this occasion. Please keep us in your prayers as I battle cancer, and accept our heartfelt gratitude for your love and friendship.”
