As Ashley Monroe Starts Chemo, Country Music Rallies

The country music community is rallying behind Ashley Monroe, who is battling a rare blood cancer.

Monroe, a member of country act Pistol Annies with Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley, has been diagnosed with Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia, and shared the difficult news on social media.

Chemotherapy awaits, and Monroe will fight hard. ”I’m thankful I have an illness that is VERY live with-able,” she wrote. “I’m thankful there is a treatment that actually works to fight what is causing harm to my body. Thankful for friends and family who have gathered around me praying and sending flowers and letting me lean on them during this super weird chapter of my life. Thankful for my angel son. Who I am fighting for the most.”
