“Some of you may have heard various rumors since I have had to cancel a few shows over the past few weekends.  To clarify and put those rumors to bed, I wanted to just come out and explain what is going on.  Two weeks ago, I was diagnosed with lung cancer.  At that time, I was in shock and scared as I didn’t know what that really meant.   After testing, the doctors have asked me to take the next 4 months off from touring and to focus on chemotherapy and radiation treatments to shrink the cancer cells.  I will keep you all updated on the  progress.  I am forever grateful for the love, support, and prayers during this time.”
