He said:

“I thought I was just going in to get a checkup, and he told me I got cancer,”

Money said the diagnosis hit him hard, but he didn’t want to hide it:

“It’s not honest, I wanna be honest with everybody. I want people to know that cancer’s come a long way and not everybody dies from cancer like they did in the 50s and 60s”.

“Am I gonna live a long time? Who knows, it’s in God’s hands. But you know what? I’ll take every day I can get. Every day above ground is a good day.”
