Tammy Faye Cancer

By  | 

Former televangelist Tammy Faye Messner says she has inoperable lung cancer.

The woman formerly known as Tammy Faye Bakker made the announcement on CNN's "Larry King Live." Messner says she believes in miracles and may try holistic treatment in addition to chemotherapy.

Messner is most well known for her work with married to and divorced from television minister Jim Bakker. He was convicted and has served prison time for fraud.

Recently Messner has appeared on the reality television show "The Surreal Life." Her self-help book was released last year but may have greater meaning now. It's entitled "I Will Survive... and You Will, Too!"
