STOMACH CANCER: Wha happened to Toby Keith?
Toby Keith has confirmed that he has cancer, but the good news is that he’s taking steps to lessen the symptoms of the disease… including trying every treatment available.
The iconic country singer revealed the devastating news in a heartfelt statement on Twitter on Sunday.
He writes, “Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer.”
He adds, “I’ve spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation, and surgery. So far, so good. I need time to breathe, recover and relax. I am looking forward to spending this time with my family, but I will see the fans sooner than later. I can’t wait.”
Toby has a history of working for organizations that promote cancer awareness and juvenile help, so the fact that he’s currently suffering from the disease is heartbreaking.
The fact that TK has been seemingly plugging along just fine in his music career of late, putting out a new album and even performing live… with regular social media posts, even ones that show him in high spirits… is what makes this so shocking to many.
The guy recently stated that he’d be doing a new show in November, during Coachella Crossroads in California, but it’s unclear if that show will go on now.
Tickets are already on sale, and the venue has made no announcements about changes to its schedule or plans. In any case, friend, I hope you’re feeling well soon.
