“I was placed on medication for life” – Mercy Johnson opens up about cancer, her life changing surgery

Actress Mercy Johnson has shared her story of overcoming cancer and undergoing a procedure that changed her life for the first time.

Joke Silva appeared as a special guest on Mercy Johnson’s most recent episode of her cooking show on YouTube.

Mercy Johnson asked Joke Silver about the wellbeing of renowned actor Olu Jacobs during the performance.

Joke responded, and the mother of four went on to describe how her cancer diagnosis led to her being put on a lifetime medication regimen.

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.”
