Singer Natalie Grant announced today that she will undergo surgery to remove half of her thyroid, a move precipitated by the discovery of two cancerous tumors.
The procedure, scheduled for Oct. 10, will take Grant off the road until the end of November. She has canceled all of her shows and special appearances from now until the start of the Celebrate Christmas Tour with Danny Gokey, starting Nov. 30.
In an emotional video posted on social media, Grant told her fans about the upcoming procedure, the history of her thyroid issues, and how she's processing the news.
