Today (July 13), country singer-songwriter Ashley Monroe shared that she has been diagnosed with waldenstrom macroglobulinemia, a rare type of blood cancer which has caused her body to be severely anemic.
The Pistol Annie singer begins chemotherapy tomorrow (July 14), sharing that, though that may seem negative, she’s “thankful [to] have an illness that is VERY live with-able. [She’s] thankful there IS a treatment that actually works to fight what is causing harm to [her] body.”
Taking to social media to share the news with fans, Monroe says, “THANKFUL for friends and family who have gathered around me praying and sending flowers and letting me lean on them during this super weird chapter of my life. Thankful for my angel son. Who I am fighting for the most.”
