Her fellow country artists rallied around the singer after her announcement.
Ashley Monroe took to Instagram on Tuesday (July 13) to deliver the devastating news that she has been diagnosed with a rare blood cancer.
The Grammy-nominated country singer, who is also part of Pistol Annies with Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley, wrote that she had become anemic and her red blood count kept falling. Her doctor ordered a bone marrow biopsy, which revealed the cancer diagnosis of Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia.
Her fellow country artists -- including Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman, Martina McBride, Lainey Wilson and Tenille Townes -- quickly rallied around Monroe, posting words of support and heart emojis on her Instagram.
