Mercy Johnson Clarifies Her Statement On Cancer
During the recent editions of her TV Show, Mercy’s Menu with Joke Silva, the actress revealed that she had a cancer health scare and as a result, she was placed on life medication.
She said, “I had a scare. I had a cancer scare. It was like a journey for us because of the kids. My last born was 6 months at that time. We had to understand that this is our new reality. Let’s get the surgery done. They said I was going to be on medication for the rest of my life. It was a reality that we had to sit down”.
In a new video shared on her Instagram page, the mother of four revealed that some fans misinterpret her health condition as she has been receiving calls and messages after being misquoted as having cancer.
Mercy showed her heartfelt gratitude to people who had called and sent her prayers over the worrisome news which was misunderstood.
The actress, who clarified that she does not have cancer, said she only had a cancer scare and her doctors felt it was something serious.
She said: “Hi guys! ok so first of all I must thank you so much for all of you who have been calling and sending messages and prayers, thank you, I do appreciate it so much but I DO NOT HAVE CANCER!

I said I had a cancer scare means that I have this sweeping on my neck (shows her neck), You can see the line there and my doctor felt it was something serious. I had problems with my thyroid, I am perfectly okay.
