Cynthia Bailey is offering an update on her mom, Barbara Ford Morris. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum took to Instagram to open up about how her mother is doing following a recent health scare.
On August 12, Cynthia revealed that her family had just received some positive news regarding Barbara’s health. She shared several glowing photos taken with her mom and her sister, captioning it, “THE POWER OF FAMILY [AND] PRAYER.”
Cynthia went on to explain, “Just recently my beautiful mother [Barbara Ford Morris] was diagnosed with breast cancer. She didn’t feel anything but it showed up on her most recent mammogram. We took her to her first doctors appointment yesterday to confirm what stage and her treatment options. By the grace of God, we caught it early [and] it is only stage one. With surgery to remove the cancer [and] radiation she is going to be fine.”
Cynthia revealed why she ultimately decided to share the diagnosis, writing, “Initially I only shared this information with close friends [and] family but after getting the great news yesterday that my mom is going to be ok, I felt inclined to share it with all of you. Thank you for all the love [and] prayers [and] well wishes.”
She concluded by adding, “Ladies please make sure you get your mammograms yearly. Early detection is key!”
Cynthia also shared several photos of Barbara smiling after receiving the uplifting news. “If she is good, I’m good!” she captioned the photo. “Happy to see my mom smiling again.”
Cynthia’s family members also took to the comments to voice their support for Barbara. Her husband, Mike Hill, who previously dubbed Barbara his “marriage mom,” wrote, “Love you momma,” while Cynthia’s daughter, Noelle Robinson, chimed in with a series of heart emojis.
