Eddie Money has revealed that he's currently battling stage 4 esophageal cancer. The legendary rock artist shared the sad news in a new video clip for his AXS television series Real Money.
“I thought I was going in for a check-up and [the doctor] told me I have cancer,” Money says in the video. “We found out that I had cancer and that it was stage 4 and that it was in my liver and my lymph nodes and a little bit in my stomach ... It hit me really, really hard.”
The musician's wife, Laurie, noted specifically that her husband has been diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer. "It’s in his esophagus, it’s in the top of his stomach -- it’s where the tumor is -- and it’s also spread to his liver," she says.
