Ashley Monroe took to Instagram to share a heartwarming health update after finishing her last round of chemotherapy in December — and hinted at more music on the way. Posting a couple sunny beach pics, Monroe, 35, shared her good news, writing in her caption:

“Ok, good news alert. I had my PET scans and labs on February 24. My 6th chemo sessions were December 14 and 15, so these tests were the ‘let’s see if that worked’ kind.
“Well IT DID! My blood work looked amazing and normal and so did my scans! They say this kind is incurable, but I’m just gonna believe it IS curable, and it’s gone forever. That was truly one of the most difficult seasons of my life. I didn’t know it was possible to feel so sick and defeated. BUT, I believe it was meant to be and I know it has made me a better person . Thank you for your prayers, I truly felt them. I love you all. Ready to make and share more music ! To say I have a lot to say, is an understatement.”

The Pistol Annies artist previously shared a celebratory video of the moment she rang a bell to mark her last round of chemo, surrounded by hospital workers applauding and congratulating her. Monroe announced in July that she had been diagnosed with a rare blood cancer called Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia. See her latest “good news alert” here:
