Back in September, Billy Graham’s daughter Anne Graham Lotz shared some worrying news with her followers. She was diagnosed with breast cancer and would have to undergo chemo.

Anne’s daughters, siblings, and the rest of the tight-knit family rallied around her as she started treatment. A few months later, her latest health update is rather uplifting!

Anne’s upbeat treatment update

Chemo is known for causing debilitating side effects, but Anne has faced them stoically. Her test results following the fifth round of chemo showed a good picture, so the evangelist wondered if she needed to go through more grueling treatments, she wrote on her website.

Anne asked God for a sign. Could she stop getting chemo, or did she need more treatments to be healed? That’s when her daughter, Rachel-Ruth, came to visit and her words were the sign Anne asked for! She wrote in the latest update:

[Rachel-Ruth] related the story of the Syrian general, Naaman, who had leprosy. A little Israelite slave girl told Naaman about Elisha, a man of God, who could heal him. When Naaman sought Elisha, he was told, “Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan…and you will be cleansed.” (2 Kings 5:10) Naaman resisted, saying that Syria had better rivers than the Jordan. He did not want to submit himself to the “side effects” of muck and mud. But at his servant’s urging, Naaman did dip in the Jordan.  When he came up the seventh time, he was healed! The seventh time!

That’s when Anne knew she would have to power through the remaining round of chemo, with God’s help. The infusion is scheduled for February 14, and Anne fears nothing.

She has no fear of dying

Back in October, when Anne just started treatment, her prognosis was great (and still is). Despite the good prognosis, she wrote that she had “no fear of death.”

But, with her family’s sincere prayers and God’s support, that prospect seems much further away! We are hoping for Anne’s full recovery and are sending prayers her way.
