Classic rock 70-year-old legend Eddie Money announced that he was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer in a preview clip of his reality show “Real Money.”
“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.”
