The mum-of-four puts on a brave face as she makes regular visits to the hospital, with cameras capturing her and Coffey’s emotions along the way.
Although the Netflix series shares Criscilla’s journey with cancer in depth, we’ve done some research to provide an update on how she is now.

Criscilla Anderson on Country Ever After
Criscilla, who is a dancer and choreographer, shared her journey with cancer on Country Ever After.
She first went through 7 rounds of chemotherapy after being diagnosed with stage 3C colon cancer.
Coffey and Criscilla remain positive through it all. She didn’t let it hold her back from doing usual daily things, like arranging a surprise birthday party for her husband.
She spends 6 hours lying down for her final chemotherapy session, and said she has scar tissues on both of her hands from her rounds of chemo.

When did Criscilla get a cancer diagnosis?
Doctors told Criscilla that the cancer was “treatable, not curable” and that that they don’t know if she will be alive in 5 years.
Criscilla then went onto have a remission, but was later told that the colon cancer had advanced to stage 4 in November 2019.
However, she revealed some positive news in April 2020.

I know that God is healing me. I know that the next time I go in for another scan, they’re going to be gone.
