Former Full House contestant Candace Cameron Bure made it all the way to the finals on “Dancing with the Stars” and just hours before the big show the actress announced that both her and her partner Mark Ballas have suffered injury.
Last week on American Icons week of the dance show, Bure and her partner Ballas danced the foxtrot and a jazz number. The Christian actress let her light shine as she graced the dance floor and it left the judges with nothing but praise for Bure as she made it through into the final round of the competition.
CBS reported that during rehearsals for the finals, Ballas was badly injured due to a complicated maneuver in which he lifts the actress onto his shoulders. After a hospital visit, Ballas has been encouraged to sit out of the finale, but he has insisted he wants to perform.
Bure took to social media to ask for continued prayers for her partner and to let her followers know that she too is hurt.
As for Ballas she said, “I still don’t know if he’s going to dance tonight, but my hopes are high that he’ll push through it. I know how much he wants to dance this last dance as much as I do, together.”
Bure then revealed, “I was also injured on a minor scale yesterday and am in a lot of pain today. My back went into spasm and I have a bruised rib.”
