A “Real Housewives” star has provided fans with an important update three months after revealing that her mom had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

On November 22, 2022, Cynthia Bailey from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” shared that her mom, Barbara Morris, had successfully completed cancer treatment and her most recent tests showed that she is cancer free.

Bailey first revealed her mom’s breast cancer diagnosis in August 2022.

“She didn’t feel anything but it showed up on her most recent mammogram. We took her to her first doctors appointment yesterday to confirm what stage and her treatment options. By the grace of God, we caught it early & it is only stage one,” Bailey wrote in an Instagram caption at the time.

Here’s what you need to know:

Bailey’s Mom Had Surgery & Radiation to Treat Her Breast Cancer

After doctor’s found a lump on Morris’ mammogram, additional tests were run to find out what type of stage of cancer she had. Her course of treatment followed suit and she underwent surgery to remove the tumor and surrounding tissue followed by radiation treatments.

Just before Morris’ surgery, Bailey confidently said that her mom was “going to be fine.”

“Initially I only shared this information with close friends & family but after getting the great news yesterday that my mom is going to be ok, I felt inclined to share it with all of you,” Bailey wrote on Instagram before encouraging others to get their yearly mammograms.

About a week later, Morris underwent surgery. Bailey shared a post from the pre-op room at the hospital, saying that her mom was a “little anxious & nervous but otherwise in good spirits mentally and emotionally.”

She asked fans for prayers as her mom went in for her procedure. Thankfully, everything went well.
