Speaking in the video, he said, “For the past three weeks or two weeks, I have been fighting for my life.” Some of you have no idea. It happened that I was diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma, which is a brain tumor, and I had no idea I would be sharing my story.

“Here I am sitting on this seat, sharing my own story about how I had a tumor in my brain. It was so bad that I couldn’t read out of my phone anymore, to the point where this eye, which I couldn’t read with, was also closing. “They said it is a craniopharyngioma, and we need to do surgery to remove it.”

Recall that Veteran Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson has debunked rumours of having cancer , expressing gratitude to fans for their calls and prayers over the worrisome news.

The renowned actress, who took to her Instagram page on Sunday in a video clip to clarify the rumours of her having cancer, said she only spoke of having cancer scare, which doctors felt was something serious.

According to her, she is doing well and does not have cancer, but she was only misunderstood with her explanation in her first video clip on “Mercy’s Menu.”

She stressed that she only had problems with her thyroid but perfectly okay and does not have cancer.

“Hi guys, Okay, so first and foremost, thank you so much to all of you who have been calling and sending messages and prayers. I do appreciate it so much.

But  I do not have cancer. I noticed that a clip from my TV show, Mercy’s Menu, has been flying around, and I think they cut the clip.

“I said I had a cancer scare; it means that I had this swelling on my neck and my doctors felt it was something serious.” I had problems with my thyroid, but I am now perfectly okay.

“Thank you so much for all of your calls and your messages, the phone has been buzzing like crazy, I am perfectly fine, and I do not have cancer.”

”I am perfectly okay.” So thank you so much for checking up on me and for sending those messages.

“Go back and watch the clip; it was completely misunderstood, I am fine, I do not have cancer in Jesus’ name; thank you guys so much,” she wrote .
