“Vanderpump Rules” star Ariana Madix revealed Monday she is “in the clear now” after having cancer removed in 2018.
“2018 was a year full of huge moments that were unplanned. Lifelong dreams fulfilled and unexpected hardships overcome,” the Bravo personality penned on Instagram. “We went to Cuba and Japan! I dreamt of going to both from such a young age. I had to have a lil bit o’cancer removed from my body and lymph nodes biopsied.”
Though Madix, 33, did not disclose further details about the cancer scare, she previously posted a video which featured a bandage close to her chest.
“Update: I’m not allowed to shower so I feel extra gross,” she said at the time, according to Us Weekly.
“I’m watching scary shows but what is really scary is what’s going on in there,” Madix continued. “Still waiting on biopsy results, lymph node biopsy results. So hopefully next week I get a clear on that. Until then, I feel really disgusting.”
As for what the new year has in store, Madix is eager to find out.
“So much progress was made on my many goals and ambitions, but I’ve had to learn the same lessons in life over and over: Intense ambition is one of my best qualities BUT when it becomes overwhelming to have so many goals, I need to take a step back and just focus on one thing,” Madix explained.
“Even if an issue won’t be solved right away, talking about it ALWAYS sends it on a path to resolution and healing,” she added. “Looking ahead to 2019 with optimism, hope, and more hard work on the horizon.”
