Nollywood Actress, Mercy Johnson Okojie, has opened up about how she survived cancer and her life changing surgery.
She made this revelation during the latest episode of her YouTube cooking show where she had a special guest, Joke Silva on for a chat.
During the show, Mercy Johnson asked Joke Silva about the health of Veteran Actor, Olu Jacobs. Following the response from Joke, the mother of four shared her story of how she was put on on medication for life when she was diagnosed with cancer.
In her words;
“Odi (her husband) and I actually have been here and I have never discussed it where we had, like uhm, a scare. I had a cancer scar in quote and I had like my thyroid removed. And it was like a journey to us because we have kids.
My last was six months at that time and we kept on saying “okay we have 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 we had to sit down.
You Know, then 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 of all the side effects. So I’m reconciling with this that you’re saying. It’s the truth. At that point you realize this is where we are, let’s grow from here. Let’s live in this comfort zone”.
