Actress Mercy Johnson Opens Up On Battle With Cancer

Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson has spoken out about her battle with cancer and an operation that altered her life for the first time.

This was revealed by the actress on a recent episode of her cookery program on YouTube, when Joke Silva joined her as a special guest for a discussion.

During the event, Mercy Johnson questioned Joke Silva about the condition of her husband Olu Jacobs.

After Joke’s comment, Mercy described how she was diagnosed with cancer and given lifetime medicine.

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.”
