Last week, Priscilla Shirer took to Facebook to reveal that doctors would be removing an entire lobe from her left lung due to “dangerous irregularities.”
“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,” shared Shirer.
Shirer has recently just lost her mother, Lois Evans, to a rare form of cancer, said her surgery was delayed due to the recent difficulties her family has faced.
In addition to the death of her mother, the family is still grieving over the death of her Grand-father, Tony Evans’ father in November and the unexpected loss of Evans’ sister, Beverly Johnson, who died in January.
Despite the challenges that Shirer and the Evans family have faced, their held on to their faith for sustenance.
Shirer wrote “For those reasons, the surgery was delayed but I cannot put it off any longer without jeopardizing my own health. So this Monday, 1/13/20, surgeons will be removing an entire lobe of my left lung,”.
Shirer said that her church has been praying for the upcoming surgery so she wanted to share the news on social media for those who are concerned about her health and well-being.
Some of Shirer’s closest friends have been so supportive and took to social media to share that they too were praying for her;
“In the cab on the way to the hospital where our friend is having surgery. Armed and dangerous. And yes we will no doubt march around the hospital 7 times like it’s Jericho. We may stop short of praise dancing with banners in the waiting room.” said Beth Moore in a cab with Christine Caine.
Let us keep the Shirer/Evans Family in our prayers.
