Country star Coffey Anderson and wife Criscilla detail her heartbreaking cancer battle: ‘It’s not cu


 Country star Coffey Anderson has opened up about his wife Criscilla’s heartbreaking cancer battle, revealing the disease is unlikely to be curable  Criscilla, 39, first started noticing signs of her ill health in May 2018 when she doubled over with stomach pains and was taken to a hospital  The singer was diagnosed with colitis and sent home, but the situation eventually got so bad that when doctors attempted to operate, they couldn’t because a tumour was in the way  During an agonising 11 days of surgery, doctors removed two feet of her colon.  At this point, Criscilla was diagnosed with stage 3C colon cancer but it has now advanced to stage 4  Opening up about their devastating ordeal, Coffey told People: ‘When you say that you will be there for each other through thick and thin and through sickness and health, you have to mean it  ‘There are a lot of moments that you can never prepare for. I mean, I never thought I would be helping Criscilla brush her teeth or get to the bathroom in the middle of the night But we are willing to do it for each other. Each of us are giving 100%.’  The couple recall how a doctor advised: ‘I don’t think it’s curable It’s treatable, but not curable.’  Unfortunately, the disease has worsened for Criscilla who has now revealed: ‘The cancer has spread throughout my para-aortic region and has begun growing up my back  ‘My ultimate goal is to be in remission and have it not be chronic but be in a situation where it can be completely healed The ideal, if that cannot happen, would be to keep it maintained and have it not spread any further for the rest of my life ’  There’s still hope for Criscilla as she will now begin three months of chemotherapy at City of Hope National Medical Center in California, and is also set to visit a holistic doctor in Houston, who is expected to make changes to her diet and mental state  The disease has no doubt brought up difficult memories for Coffey, whose mother died of lung cancer just 10 days before his 11th birthday  Coffey and Criscilla are parents to three kids – Ethan, eight, Emmarie, six and Everleigh, two, whom they describe as ‘the sweetest children’
