MATTHEWS, N.C. – Former televangelist Tammy Faye Messner, of Matthews, announced Thursday on national television that she has inoperable lung cancer.

Messner, 62, said she “believes in miracles” and that she is considering holistic medicine in addition to chemotherapy to treat her cancer.

The former Tammy Faye Bakker divorced televangelist Jim Bakker in 1992 while he was serving a sentence for financial fraud.

Tammy Faye Messner has a self-help book “I Will Survive … And You Will, Too!” that was released last year before she was diagnosed. She recently appeared on the WB reality show “The Surreal Life,” costarring with former rapper Vanilla Ice, ex-porn star Ron Jeremy and others.

She battled colon cancer six years ago and has been in remission.
