Nigerian actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie revealed months ago that there was a cancer scare she experienced which made doctors place her on medication for the rest of her life.

Mercy Johnson explained that her thyroid – a gland in the throat – was removed through surgery as a result of the scare.

Mercy said; “I’ve never discussed it where I had a cancer scare and I had my thyroid removed. It was like a journey for us. We had kids and my last was six months at that time.

“We kept saying that we have to understand that, ‘this is the new us. Let’s go get the surgery done’. And when we go there, 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. Them giving me a time that ‘you cannot miss my medication. As you wake up, that’s the first thing’, and 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.”
