TV’s action hero Chuck Norris finally faced a villain he couldn’t beat — and it almost killed his wife.
According to Sunday’s edition of Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson, Gena Norris nearly died from complications after having MRIs several years ago.
In the report, Gena Norris said that the heavy metal gadolinium injected in her to enhance the MRI images lingered in her body for years and caused burning pain. Repeated tests were unable to locate the cause.
“I just heard that still small voice deep inside of me that said, Gena your body is dying. And I walked out of the bathroom and he just took one look at me and he knew; I’m about to lose my wife,” said Gena Norris.
Chuck Norris told Attkisson, “I saw death in her eyes. I saw her dying and I said you know I’ve got to do something.”
