Return to Amish: Mary Schmucker’s Cancer Diagnosis

Mary Schmucker has dealt with health issues over the years. When fans last saw her on Return to Amish, she tried to improve her health by changing her lifestyle. She got a personal trainer and went to the gym to work out. But exercising wasn’t an activity she liked to do.

Last year Mama Mary’s health took a turn for the worse. The TLC star found out that she has colon cancer. This type of cancer starts in the large intestine. However, it can grow through your colon and spread to nearby areas.

Mary Schmucker was scheduled to have surgery back in April 2022. She was hesitant about going under the knife. But, according to the Return to Amish alum’s daughter-in-law, Rebecca Schmucker, she got the colon surgery done and was recovering well.

The TLC star has been spending a lot of time with family. She hangs out with Rebecca and her granddaughters whenever she gets the chance.
