Joni Eareckson Health, Cancer and Accident

Tada is alive and in good health, she is currently 70 years old. She reported that she had been diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer in 2010. She went through a mastectomy and chemotherapy. She was declared cancer-free in 2015 after treatment proved successful.

Tada was diagnosed with a malignant nodule on her chest wall near the site of her original cancer in November 2018. In July 2019 she reported that she had once again been declared cancer-free after radiation treatments for the nodule proved successful. She says “Proverbs 25:25 says, “Good news from far away is like cold water to a thirsty soul.” That perfectly describes Ken and me today.

We 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.

So, THANK you for lifting us up before the Lord Jesus. 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!”
