Fox59-Indianapolis Morning News anchor Lindy Thackston has revealed that she is battling colorectal cancer.

In a post shared on her social media accounts, Thackston posted the news that she was diagnosed over the last couple of weeks and recently learned that the cancer has not spread to her organs.

A treatment plan begins next week that includes six weeks of chemo and radiation therapy, followed by surgery. Thackston said her doctors believe her cancer is stage three, but they won’t know for sure until after her surgery.

“I am confident I will beat it! And all my doctors are too,” Thackston wrote. “I want to thank you already for your support and prayers. The people who have lifted me up since my colonoscopy 14 days ago have shown me (and Chris) that support truly does help.”
