Ashley Monroe Rings the Bell As Her Last Chemo is Done!

Ashley Monroe Rings the Bell As Her Last Chemo is Done!

Earlier this year Ashley Monroe revealed that she was diagnosed with Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia in a social media post.

In July, Ashley shared, “A few months ago my dr. was doing some routine lab work and found that I was anemic. I was like, FINE, I’ll just double up on cheeseburger patties , take some extra vitamins and call it a day. Well my red blood count just kept falling, and they found out my iron /b12/ folic acid numbers were actually fine. short story long, they did a bone marrow biopsy, (ouch) , and VOILA.. a rare kind of blood c word called ‘waldenstrom macroglobulinemia’
It’s causing my body to be pretty severely anemic, and I feel it. So, I start chemo tomorrow. Seems like such a negative thing to say. Until I flip that doom feeling on its head and think, wow, I’m thankful I have an illness that is VERY live with-able. I’m thankful there IS a treatment that actually works to fight what is causing harm to my body. THANKFUL for friends and family who have gathered around me praying and sending flowers and letting me lean on them during this super weird chapter of my life.”

At the time Ashley added, “Thankful for my angel son. Who I am fighting for the most. I would greatly appreciate if no one gave me any unsolicited advice or medical opinions. I’ve done my research and have amazing Vanderbilt dr’s I’ve weighed every option with. That’s why I was hesitant to post about it, but I could use the prayers.. and I DO believe in the power of prayer guys. I also believe in the power of love healing us all on an even deeper level. I love you all big. Here I go.”

And now here she is…7 months later, right before Christmas, Ashley is sharing the end of her last chemo sessions…

Along with the video, Ashley also posted “Ring a ling a ling a ding dong ding…My last chemo is done! Merry Christmas everyone! Thank you for praying for me. I felt them more than you know. I’ve never been more thankful. Ready to Come back like never before in 2022!”

Even through her battle, Ashley Monroe, along with her fellow Pistol Annies Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley, have been out trying to spread some Christmas cheer with music from their new album, Hell Of A Holiday.
