According to the National Brain Tumor Society, an estimated 700,000 people in the United States are living with a primary brain tumor, and about 85,000 more will be diagnosed in 2021. Unfortunately, one of those people is Atlanta-based news anchor Jovita Moore.
Channel 2 Action News reported that Moore has been delivering news and information to families in Atlanta for 20 years. Doctors discovered two small masses in her brain. Moore was operated on today. Just before going on the air on Monday, she told Channel 2’s Justin Farmer that she wasn’t feeling well. The news channel also mentioned that Moore felt forgetful, disoriented, and foggy. As Moore walked through a grocery store parking lot that evening, she said that she felt she couldn’t make it to the door. After an MRI scan, a scan of her brain revealed two small masses. There haven’t been any updates on public operations yet, but Moore talked about her upcoming trip before stepping down from her job duties.
“It is important. It will be a lot. Two small tumors are, so to speak, close together and need to go, ”Moore said during the interview with Channel 2 Action News. “We then had to have a conversation about what that was and what that meant.”
In the new interview, her neurosurgeon Dr. Edjah Nduom, the prognosis is still unclear. More will be known after the operation on Friday. In addition, Channel 2 Action News and Moore asked for community prayers.
“I know we have great viewers. I know the prayer warriors will be at work, ”Moore said during the interview.
A user posted a GIF on Twitter explaining that Atlanta showed up to support Moore. The last Facebook post on Moore’s news page thanked people for the support that has already been shown to her. It was also stated that updates will be posted on her social media page when she recovers from the surgery. Now requests can be sent to Moore.
