“You dropped weight drastically,” Wyatt said. “[The doctor] was like, ‘Okay, let’s just run some blood. Let’s just check some blood, tests some blood and see.’ “

That’s when she learned Rahjah had cancer.

“My throat hit my butt and my butt hit the floor. I couldn’t believe it,” she continued. “I said, ‘What kind of cancer?’ And when she said leukemia, honey, my teeth literally started chattering.”

Rahjah is now cancer-free.

“NO MORE CANCER!!! GOD HEALED MY BABY!!!” Wyatt captioned the video, which she said was filmed while she was pregnant and pre-COVID.
