Jo Dee Messina informed her fans via her Facebook this morning (September 6) that she has been diagnosed with cancer.
The 47-year old didn’t share what type of cancer it is or when she’ll begin treatment, but she did disclose that all of her tour dates after October 7 will be postponed.
Producer Seth Mosley recalls a writing session with Messina for a new song called “Here” that he said was “particularly moving,” according to Taste of Country.
“To see Jo Dee singing ‘there’s no pain, there’s no fear, here’ through the cancer and the chaos that she is walking through,” he says. “God is going to use her and her story to intercept people in their pain and remind them that He is near.”
