But, that wasn’t actually the end of her journey. She had another appointment in February to check her blood and labs again to see if all the chemo and treatments she went through in 2021 worked beyond those few months.
And in the best news you’ll see all day (I got chills the first time I read it), she posted a lengthy caption on Instagram, saying that everything came back completely normal and healthy:
“Ok, good news alert. I had my PET scans and labs on February 24. My 6th chemo sessions were December 14 and 15, so these tests were the ‘let’s see if that worked’ kind. Well IT DID!
My blood work looked amazing and normal and so did my scans! They say this kind is incurable, but I’m just gonna believe it IS curable, and it’s gone forever. This was truly one of the most difficult seasons of my life. I didn’t know it was possible to feel so sick and defeated.
BUT, I believe it was meant to be and I know it has made me a better person. Thank you for your prayers, I truly felt them. I love you all. Ready to make and share more music! To say I have a lot to say, is an understatement.”
With everything going on the world right now, it’s so nice to read something like this and have some good news for the day:
During all the treatments she was going through, Ashley somehow managed to put out her own Covers EP, as well as a Christmas album, Hell of a Holiday, with her girl band, Pistol Annies. It goes without saying, but she’s a total badass, and I’m proud to have her representing women in country music.
