Mercy Johnson reveals journey with cancer

A Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson, has revealed for the first time how she survived cancer and underwent a procedure that changed her life.

The actress revealed this in a recent episode of her YouTube cooking show, where she was joined by Joke Silva as a special guest for a conversation.

During the show, Mercy Johnson questioned Joke Silva about the health of her husband, Olu Jacobs.

Mercy’s account of how she was given lifelong medication after being diagnosed with cancer followed Joke’s remark.

She said: “… Odi [her husband] and I have actually been here and I have never discussed it where we had, like uhm, a scare. I had a cancer scare in quote and I had like my thyroid removed. And it was like a journey for us because we had kids.

“My last was six months at that time and then we kept on saying okay, we have to understand that this is the new us, let’s go get the surgery done.

“And then we got there, they said I was going to be on medication for the rest of my life and it was a reality that we had to sit down.

“You know, them giving me a timing and telling me you can’t miss your medication. Once you wake up that day, that’s the first thing. Telling me all of the side effects.

“So I’m reconciling with this you’re saying, it’s the truth. At the point you realize this is where we are, let’s grow from here, let’s live in this comfort zone.”
