Thank you to everyone for your concerns and well wishes towards my health,” Smith’s post began.

I I will continue to be grateful for my health, and even more so now than ever! You realize that if it is in fact, in poor, standing, everything else falls secondary."

The mom of two continued, "I have lost many loved ones to cancer. The most recent one was my adoptive father and you all see that in season six. Maybe I didn’t say how he passed but that was how and it is a very sensitive subject."

She also told her costar Mary Bonnet during an emotional conversation in episode 10, “When they did the ultrasound, my uterus on the screen looked… There’s a lot of stuff there and I don’t know what it is. It doesn’t look good,” she said. Smith added, “There’s a wide array of things that it could be, and then the one thing that we pray and hope that it’s not.”

Smith admitted to Bonnet, 42, that she put off going to the doctor for months. “I’m not proud of that,” she explained. “I couldn’t deal with it and just completely avoided it for three months. I most recently went, and I finally had [the blood tests]… but I just realized, like, holy sh*t, my kids — I’m all they have. And then it just triggered something inside of me that, like, I realized I’m still not okay.”
