Shannon Beador Announced She Had ‘Skin Cancer Cut out’ & Urged Her Followers to Get Checked
Beador posted a photo of her shoulder bandaged.
“Just had skin cancer cut out,” she wrote on Instagram. “I had a scab that never healed. Make sure to get regular skin checks! Also want to thank everyone for their love and support with Archie’s skin issues. He is a little better. Will post the details tomorrow!”
She also alluded to a good health update in regards to her dog Archie, which she had shared was unhealthy.
“Archie has not been doing well for the last few months,” she posted on Instagram on April 22, 2022. “I want to warn you that some of the following slides are difficult to see. We are taking Archie to our vet and a specialist to get him better, but it is difficult. We are told his immune system is shot. He has been on multiple antibiotics for various skin infections for the last 3 months and has been taking Apoquel. Nothing helped. Right now we are combining western and holistic medicine in hopes that something will work. Today, he scratched his front leg raw with a cone on his head and a sock on his back foot; it happened in just minutes. He is so sad. Please say a little prayer for Archie. We are beside ourselves in the Beador home.”
