‘The Valley of the Shadow’: Anne Graham Lotz Facing a More Serious Cancer Battle Than First Thought

Anne Graham Lotz is facing many weeks of chemotherapy after her doctors discovered her case of 

breast cancer is more advanced than they first thought.

Lotz, the daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, is a Bible teacher and best-selling author, and she’s 

been posting about her journey, writing about how she believes God has important lessons for her 
during this difficult season.

Doctors had performed surgery a month ago to remove the cancer, but they recently discovered that 

“The surgeon then revealed, with compassion in her eyes, that she had the pathology report. As she 
went over the numbers, it became evident that the results were not what I had prayed they would be. 
A trace of cancer was found in the lymph nodes which alters the follow-up treatment significantly,” 
Lotz writes.

Her chemotherapy treatments will begin October 18th and will run for 18 weeks. Then she’ll undergo 

additional treatments over the next twelve months.

“The adventurous journey through the valley of the shadow will be longer than anticipated. BUT I am 

still confident the Shepherd will walk with me each step of the way until He sees me safely through!” 
she writes.

Lotz is in high demand as a preacher and public speaker, but now she’ll need to cancel commitments 

in the coming months.

“As I looked ahead at the calendar, I could almost audibly hear the ‘click’ of the Divine pruning shears. 

I’m confident that the Gardener knows exactly what He’s doing. I’m more expectant than ever of 
bearing much eternal fruit. For His glory.”

Lotz will continue to minister to her hundreds of thousands of followers on social media. Her latest 

post on Facebook is about trusting God “the Potter” during the sufferings of life.
