A well-known name in Christian ministry, Joni Eareckson Tada, was recently hospitalized shortly after receiving cancer treatment. Joni, 69 years old, is the founder of Joni and Friends, a faith-based ministry that focuses on people with disabilities.

Throughout the years, she has also released several successful books. Some of her most popular works include “Diamonds in the Dust,” “A Place of Healing,” and “Lessons from a Hospital Bed.”

An announcement was first posted on the social media accounts of Joni and Friends. She was reportedly hospitalized for observation purposes and medical oversight after experiencing difficulties with her health. According to CBN, she was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time last November.

Ultimately, she is leaving her health condition and recovery process in the hands of God. Amidst her latest hospital visit, Joni’s team requested prayers from the public.

“As many of you know, Joni Eareckson Tada recently completed a series of radiation treatments for a recurrence of cancer. In the weeks following, Joni has been challenged with significant pain issues, including most recently, difficulty with breathing,” the Facebook post revealed.

“Knowing the truth of that promise of James 5:16, Joni and Ken [her husband] would be most grateful for your prayers today,” the post continued. “As they express confidence that God is in control, the support of prayerful concern would be deeply appreciated. So... please join us in praying without ceasing!”
