iHeartRadio- Canadian Country Singer Cadence Grace Back In Hospital
July 6, 2020
Canadian country singer Cadence Grace, who has waged a battle with an aggressive blood cancer, is back in hospital.
“Guess who needs both her hips replaced? This lucky gal right here,” the 35-year-old revealed in a Facebook post. “The femoral head on the left became necrotic and enough of the bone died that it won’t stay in the socket. The right hip is following suit right behind, it’s already 50% necrotic.”
Grace said the steroids that were part of her treatment also caused bone decay in her jaw and spine, as well as cataracts.
The singer was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia in February 2018 during a routine physical ahead of a scheduled yoga retreat in Nicaragua. After suffering complications from chemotherapy, she underwent a bone marrow transplant in April 2019.
