Three months after making her return to TV news following a battle with colorectal cancer, Fox59 anchor Lindy Thackston has been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer.
Thackston shared in her podcast, Life with Lindy, and on social media Friday that the colorectal cancer she had been diagnosed with last year had metastasized to her left lung.
“You hear Stage 4 and it’s really scary,” she said in the podcast, “but my doctors say this one is curable, as well.”.
Looking back, Thackston said her doctors believe the spot on her lung had appeared in all her scans since she was first diagnosed with Stage 3 colorectal cancer last May.
The following month, she underwent a PET scan to ensure no new growth, and doctors noticed the 1-centimeter spot on her lung, which she said in the podcast wasn’t an immediate cause for concern — lots of Hoosiers have nodules on their organs.
Unfortunately biopsy came back with news colorectal cancer metastasized to left lung.
