Christian singer Natalie Grant recently revealed that she’s having surgery next month and asked her fans to pray for both her and her family.
“We’re the family of God and we have the opportuity to stand in the gap for one another,” Grant said in a recent Facebook video. “Three years ago I had an ultrasound on my thyroid and at that time the doctors found several tumors, nodules on my thyroid.”
At first, doctors said that they would keep a close eye on the situation, but after a routine ultrasound a few weeks ago, she said that two of the tumors “have decided to not stay unconcerning.”
So, Grant is heading in for a procedure to remove the right side of her thyroid.
“Any time you hear the word ‘cancer,’ it is terrifying,” she said, adding that she is scared, but knows that God has her back, as she awaits surgery and the subsequent results.
Grant did mention one other prayer point worth highlighting: that the surgery could be somewhat more risky for a professional singer like herself.
“The surgery maybe is a little bit riskier for someone like me, just because I’m a professional singer,” she said. “There could be some changes to my voice, though I’m not even declaring that. I have complete faith in my God.”
Grant, who got emotional while discussing the issue, said that she is cancelling her concerts from mid-October until the end of November.

Hi friends. Please watch for a health update and prayer request. I love and appreciate you all so much. Natalie**addition to this post for clarification: there can be no definitive diagnosis until my surgery. Your prayer, love and support are overwhelming me in the most beautiful way!**
