A ‘Real Housewives’ star has given fans a major update three months after revealing her mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
On November 22, 2022, Cynthia Bailey of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip shared that her mother, Barbara Morris, had successfully completed cancer treatment and her latest tests showed she is cancer free.
Bailey first revealed her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis in August 2022.
“She didn’t feel anything, but it showed on her most recent mammogram. We took her to her first doctor’s appointment yesterday to confirm her stage and treatment options. By the grace of God we caught it early and it’s just the first stage,” Bailey wrote in an Instagram caption at the time.
Here’s what you need to know:
After the doctor found a lump on Morris’ mammogram, additional tests were performed to find out what stage of cancer she was in. Her course of treatment followed suit and she underwent surgery to remove the tumor and surrounding tissue, followed by radiation treatments.
Just prior to Morris’ surgery, Bailey confidently said her mother “would be fine.”
“Initially I only shared this information with close friends and family, but after receiving the great news yesterday that my mom will be fine, I felt compelled to share it with all of you,” Bailey wrote on Instagram , before encouraging others to get their yearly mammograms.
About a week later, Morris underwent surgery. Sharing a post from the hospital’s operating room, Bailey said her mother was “a little anxious and nervous but otherwise in good spirits mentally and emotionally.”
She asked for prayers from fans as her mother went to her procedure. Luckily everything went well.
Just days before Thanksgiving, Morris received good news from her doctor. After completing her radiological treatments, her cancer is completely gone.
“For anyone who has asked for an update on my mum @barbarafmorris’ cancer journey, I am delighted to let you all know that today was her last day of radiation and by the grace of God she is cancer free!!!” Bailey captioned an Instagram post on November 22, 2022.
“Thanksgiving came early. Thank you all for your love, prayers and well wishes! Glory to God!” she added.
As for Morris, she shared an uplifting quote on her Instagram feed on the same day and received multiple messages from Instagram users in response.
“I am sending you loving, peaceful energy to help you feel centered and balanced. May you have a day of harmony and serenity where you can smile and be happy. May angels watch over you so you can relax and enjoy!” read the quote.
Dozens of comments showering Morris with love piled up on the post, and many people rejoiced in the news, which Bailey shared on her account.
