Ashley Monroe is celebrating a comeback after enduring a battle with a rare cancer. The Pistol Annies artist shared a reel on Instagram, reflecting on her journey and why a pair of pants means so much to her.
“In Jun of 2021 I was diagnosed with a type of blood cancer called Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma,” Monroe, 36, wrote as she shared her story. “I vowed to give my recovery every ounce of fight I had in me. In December of 2021 I rang the bell to celebrate surviving six long months of chemotherapy.
“Before my last appointment I bought these pants and promised myself that I would wear them when I felt like ME again,” Monroe continued, sharing a glimpse of what she calls her “comeback pants.” She shared that now, she’s feeling like “ME” again and fulfilling her promise to herself. “In November of 2022 my test results revealed that I’m officially cancer free.”
Monroe confidently donned her stunning red “comeback pants,” taking a moment to celebrate and thank “my oncology team, my family and my friends for supporting me through this season of life. WE DID IT!!!!” Monroe’s Instagram followers and other artists applauded her victory in the comments, including LeAnn Rimes, Amanda Shires, Natalie Hemby, Karen Fairchild and more.
