Sarah Davis, Ravi Zacharias’ daughter recently issued a statement about her father’s health condition, saying that his cancer worsened and doctors say there are “no options for further treatment remain.” And “medically speaking, they have done all they are able.”
Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias announced in March that he had been diagnosed with sarcoma cancer. Because of this life-threatening rare form of cancer, he had to undergo treatment after his back surgery.
Update On Ravi Zacharias’ Health
Ravi’s daughter informed the ministry’s global staff about her father’s health status on Friday.
“We have just learned that while the tumor in my dad’s sacrum has been responding to the chemotherapy, the area where the cancer metastasized has actually worsened,” the CEO of RZIM wrote.
Further, she added, “His oncologist informed us that this cancer is very rare in its aggression and that no options for further treatment remain. Medically speaking, they have done all they are able.”
Apparently, Ravi’s wife, Margaret was with him during the duration of his treatment. Also, Sarah disclosed in her statement that the whole family will be “returning from Houston and will remain at home in Atlanta, where our family can be together for whatever time the Lord gives us.”
The public update on Ravi’s condition was posted one day after the Christian author shared a picture of him and his wife on Instagram. He did the sweet gesture for his wife for their wedding anniversary.
He wrote, “In sickness and in health. Our 48th wedding anniversary looked different than the others. But three things remain the same: our love for each other, the gift of family and friends who shower us with kindness, and the abiding faithfulness of our great God.”
“Thanks to everyone who sent greetings and words of encouragement to Margie and me on this occasion. Please keep us in your prayers as I battle cancer, and accept our heartfelt gratitude for your love and friendship.”
Sarah extended their gratefulness to everyone who has supported her dad as well. Sshe concluded with the statement, “We know that God has purposed and numbered each of our days. And only He knows how many more Ravi will experience on this earth.”
“One day, likely sooner than later, we will be serving without our beloved founder. Though I know his love and legacy will convict and inspire us to service of his Lord even greater than we have seen before.”
It seems that the family is trusting God for what is to come in their beloved father’s life.
“While we are full of so many emotions, we are also at peace. Resting in the truth that God knows all and sees all and is sovereign and good. I think of the great joy my dad will have, and I am comforted,” she said.
