If you were a country fan in the late 1980s, you probably heard Holly Dunn’s music on the radio. Thanks to hits like “Daddy’s Hands” and “You Really Had Me Going,” the Texas native became one of the promising artists of the decade.
After years of releasing music and working in the industry, she decided to resign her membership from the Grand Ole Opry and retired from music in 2003. She moved to New Mexico to focus on creating fine art, her other passion in life. After many years away from the spotlight, Dunn’s fans are once again gathering around her for support after she revealed her ongoing fight with cancer.
“Back in March of this year, I was diagnosed with a rare, very aggressive form of ovarian cancer,” Dunn explained in a recent interview with Hallels. “If you read the statistics, it is very bleak. Good thing I don’t believe in statistics! I had surgery and now I am having chemo treatments. I have since grown more tumors and it is going to be more of a battle than I anticipated, but I have a huge faith in the healing power of God and the healing power within me that originates from my God. I look towards a future when I am completely healed and cancer free. I ask for prayers of strength and courage as this journey continues.”
