Tammy Faye: Coping With Cancer Through Faith & Courage
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (July 19, 2007) -- In an interview that was both hard to watch and impossible to turn away from, Tammy Faye Messner provided a lesson in dignity.
Messner, struggling with cancer at a frail 65 pounds, bravely put on those trademark lashes and mascara yesterday to tape an interview with Larry King.
"I talk to God every single day," said Tammy, as she sat beside her husband. "And I say 'God, my life is in your hands, and I trust you, with me.'"
The spiritual former televangelist displayed the optimism and courage that make her an inspiration to so many people.
"I'm doing pretty good considering the circumstances," she told Larry as the interview got underway.
