While it is small, there has been an update for Chrisley fans on Nanny Faye’s health and cancer.

Chrisley Knows Best fans were gutted when Todd Chrisley confirmed his mother Nanny Faye had cancer back in June of this year. Todd explained in an episode of his podcast that the family had actually known about his mother’s cancer for a while. The family, however, opted to keep her health struggles private at her request.

Sadly, news of Nanny Faye’s cancer was brought to light during Todd and Julie’s legal trial for tax evasion and bank fraud. Todd explained in his podcast the legal issues threatened to bring the condition of his mother’s health to light. So, he wanted to get ahead of the story and tell their truth before it was skewed by media outlets and headlines.
