Montell Williams Breaks Down After Learning His Daughter Has Cancer


A parent never imagine their child being sick. Montell Williams reveals that his 24 year old daughter Maressa has cancer. He broke down and cried upon hearing the news.

Maressa has stage 2 Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph tissue and Williams, who has been battling multiple sclerosis since 1999, is overwhelmed by the medical analysis; saying in the new issue of Closer Weekly, “I just thought, I have already paid the price in this department. So why her?”

The veteran TV talent is putting his own health struggles aside so that he can focus on helping his daughter beat cancer. “We need to hit the ground running and get this done and get rid of it,” Williams emphasized to the publication. “I could wallow in a hole, but I won’t let myself go there,” he said.

Maressa is a nursing student and amateur body builder. She learned about her diagnosis this past Labor Day weekend after struggling with what she thought was a slipped disk in her back.

“I felt like I was in a dream,” she told the magazine. “I was worried I was going to hear I was going to die or have only six months to live.”

Maressa’s medical prognosis is not a death sentence though; Hodgkin lymphoma has a 10-year survival rate of 90 percent—yet her road to recovery is just beginning. She will face four to six months of chemotherapy treatments every two weeks.

    Montell, I just overcame a rare form of Uterine cancer. With all my other health related problems the doctors had a grim outlook for my recuperation. They told me during surgery my heart would fail, they would have to intubate me and after the surgery they would have to put me in a semi-comatose state because of my enlarged heart. Of course my first reaction was shock and fear, THEN I CALLED ON JESUS. After deep consultations, He told me not to worry He would bring me through. Well Jesus showed up and showed out–I didn’t even have to go to ICU–there were no complications. The recovery period will be coming to and end as far the hospitalization is concerned–I have been in a ling term recovery facility since Sept. 7, I had 200 stitches, 3 drainage tubes and I have diabetes and I am overweight by 100 pounds. My god has been so good to me–the stitches are removed, healed 100%, I am in physical therapy, lost 42 ponds, and they removed all the cancer from my uterus and the lymph nodes and I will be going home on Nov. 30. Oh yeah the Plastic surgeon had to remove 20 pounds of fat from my stomach so I would not get infection and the excess skin it left behind. My spirit never wavered and I had faith in my Jesus and He brought me through. The only person who ha the final say as to your daughter’s condition is Jesus–call on Divine Order Jesus, Heal Montell’s daughter with your blood in between your stripes in Jesus name we pray.
