Heartbreaking news has hit the Real Housewives of Potomac — Mia Thronton has been diagnosed with cancer. The newest Potomac cherry blossom is a businesswoman who came into the group thanks to her friend, the Grand Dame Karen Huger. She fit right in with the ladies and didn’t hesitate to join in on the reasonable shadiness. Now, in-between seasons of the show, Mia took to Instagram to reveal her diagnosis.
The RHOP star posted a snatched selfie along with a long caption to explain the news. Mia says she received the call from her doctor a week prior to making the post. She did not reveal the specifics of her diagnosis but says she’s been seeing specialists at John Hopkins Cancer Center. “The storm is not over but this experience is changing me,” Mia wrote.
Mia added that she and her husband Gordon Thornton experienced an “overwhelming amount of emotion” after receiving the call. “Even with such terrible news, I felt an extreme amount of peace and energy instilled that allowed me to remain strong,” she added. It’s amazing to see how positive Mia is being about the road ahead, and my heart goes out to her, G, and their kids as they go through this experience.
The post concluded with Mia giving her followers “a gentle reminder to Live, Love & Forgive as if today was your last.” The comments were flooded with support, including from her RHOP co-star Robyn Dixon. “Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong mama,” Robyn wrote. Also, alum Monique Samuels wrote that she is “sending prayers and healing power” Mia’s way.

The support for Mia is extending outside of RHOP. Real Housewives of New York newbie Eboni K. Williams also commented a handful of emojis to express that she’s praying for Mia. Also, Real Housewives of Atlanta peach Sheree Whitfield wrote that she will be “keeping [Mia] in [her] prayers.” I think we can all express similar sentiments to Mia and her family and wish the best for Mia on her healing journey.
