Country music artist Toby Keith has disclosed that he has been battling stomach cancer since the second half of the previous year, but that he has finished his treatment and will shortly resume performing. Keith revealed details about his cancer diagnosis on his official Instagram and Twitter profiles. He said that in the fall of 2017, he received a diagnosis of stomach cancer.
He penned a piece in which he expressed his thoughts on the struggle against cancer he has been waging for the past six months. He informed his followers that he was undergoing chemotherapy, surgeries, and radiation therapy as part of his cancer treatment. He added in his statement that he is now relaxing, recovering from his sickness, and spending time with his family. All of this was included in his justification. He will soon have the opportunity to speak with his admirers, though.
About Keith and his involvement with the music business
Keith, who was born and raised in Oklahoma, worked in the oil sector and was a quarterback for USFL football teams before deciding to pursue a career in music. In 1993, Mercury released his debut record under his own name, which went on to sell more than a million copies and become a commercial success.
The conservatism of Keith’s political beliefs is the main factor contributing to his reputation. One of his best-known songs is “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue (The Angry American),” which was published in 2002 and was inspired in part by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
Keith’s work has gained a lot of acclaim and is regarded as some of the best country songs. The country song “Old School,” which peaked in the top 25, is on his most recent album, “Peso in My Pocket.”
Keith was honored by being inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in November 2017. He performed recently at the Heroes Honor Festival at the Daytona International Raceway.
There is a chance that Keith’s upcoming concert won’t happen.
According to his spokeswoman Elaine Schock, Keith has been given a cancer diagnosis, thus he won’t be singing at any of his upcoming shows for a while. His previous tour was supposed to begin this Friday. On June 17, Keith was supposed to kick off a tour in support of his new album, “Peso in My Pocket,” and the tour was also supposed to stop in other locations. There has been no official announcement regarding the concert’s status—whether it will be continued, postponed, or cancelled—since it was supposed to take place at the Ohio State Fair on July 28.
In addition, Keith has a history of helping children who are fighting cancer. The Toby Keith Foundation was founded in 2006 with the goal of helping children with cancer, according to the organization’s website.
