Unfortunately, in another post, Beth told her fans that their 20th anniversary was "officially on hold due to bad weather."
Her latest posts come after she opened up publicly about her battle with throat cancer. She told the congregation at the Source Church in Bradenton, Florida:
“I don’t go to God and go, ‘Why did I get cancer?’ He’ll roll his eyes at me again, because I know why — because this is the ultimate test of faith. It is the evidence of things hoped for and it is the substance of things not known.”
Beth then revealed that she has decided not to pursue chemotherapy as a means for fighting her illness. She explained:
“Chemotherapy is not my bag, people. Sorry, that’s not for me. So for me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it will either be taught to me or to you. And I am fine with taking the hit for everyone else. Because I think I know another guy who did the same thing.”
In November 2018, Beth was rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles for emergency surgery to clear a throat blockage that was obstructing her airways. The doctors then revealed that the cancer had returned.
Beth was first diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in September 2017 and had to undergo surgery to have the tumor removed from her neck.
