Meadow Walker is counting her blessings.

On Thursday, Nov. 11, the 23-year-old newlywed revealed on Instagram that she had previously experienced a health scare involving a tumor. Fortunately, she is feeling much better these days.

"2 years ago today," she captioned a photo taken in an undisclosed hospital. "I've come a very long way. Bye bye tumor. Blessed & grateful."

While more details about her health situation were not immediately available, Meadow received lots of support from friends and followers including Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel, who commented with the prayer hands emoji. After seeing so many supportive and positive messages, Meadow wrote on Instagram Stories, "Sending my unconditional love 2 everyone in the world."

Meadow, who was 15 years old when her father, Paul Walker, died in a 2013 car crash, recently had another reason to celebrate when she married her boyfriend Louis Thornton-Allan in a private beachside ceremony.

On Oct. 22, the model confirmed her new relationship status on Instagram, writing "We're married" alongside a black-and-white video of her wedding.


At the time, a source confirmed to E! News that Vin had walked her down the aisle. Fast & Furious co-star Jordana Brewster was also in attendance for the romantic day.

In recent years, Meadow has continued to honor her father's legacy by supporting a variety of causes.

In addition to serving as president and founder of the Paul Walker Foundation, Meadow also is a global ambassador for Everyone's Invited, a place for sexual-violence survivors to share their stories.

As for the Fast & Furious movies, many co-stars believe Meadow and her father still have an influence on the popular franchise.

In fact, Jordana previously said that Meadow was on set during filming of this year's F9 and helped the cast make sure "his legacy can be incorporated."

"I think [Ludacris] put it beautifully when he said Paul's presence is always, always with us and we always want to honor his legacy," Jordana shared on SiriusXM back in June.
