Robertson, of “Duck Dynasty” and “Dancing With the Stars,” shared the plight of Katie Joyce, who The News-Star first reported on in 2012.
Joyce was diagnosed with a brain tumor, called an ependymoma, on Aug. 27, 2010, when she was 2. Joyce underwent brain surgery at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, followed by 33 rounds of radiation at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She had to learn to walk again, had to receive physical therapy and had to undergo countless tests and procedures before beating that round of cancer.
Recently though, the family learned Joyce has another brain tumor — this is one inoperable and on the brain stem.
“The only thing that can fix this is if we storm the gates of heaven,” Roberston wrote, and the post has brought in comments and prayers from fans near and far.
The Robertson family is known for openly sharing their Christian faith.
