Gerri Willis on Defeating Breast Cancer

Gerri Willis is known as one of the most beloved personalities in the Fox News family. That’s why the entire Fox News fans have been sending their prayers the last year when she announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

On Wednesday night, Willis returned to Fox Business Network to discuss defeating cancer.  Willis bravely showed up to her interview without her wig, something that definitely took a lot of guts for her to do.

Watch the video below:

“It’s been a real journey… I had a mastectomy of my right breast… I then went into chemo-therapy, eight treatments over four months. The “red devil,” which is the really caustic chemotherapy, then Taxol, then after that I had breast reconstruction and then finally five weeks of daily treatments.”

Willis also discussed the traumatic experience of losing her hair.

“That was the second chemotherapy and it fell out after that. A little note to self if this ever happens to you, just shave your head, to begin with, because pulling you, hair out in lumps is a real drag…. My priority is getting better, who cares about my hair.”

Now that she’s in remission, Willis urged her fans to get mammograms so that they can find out if they have this dreaded disease.

“If you are worried about this … I know a lot of people who stay away from the mammogram for that reason alone… you have to take care of yourself,” Willis said, adding that she feels “better” and “stronger” and like a “new person.”

 

God bless her! She has the right attitude to be a positive force in times of adversity. God gives us that ability to choose the direction we want to go in defeating negative challenges in our lives! Always pick the chose of Jesus!
