Toby Keith Shares Health Update As He Battles Stomach Cancer

Toby Keith, who has been fighting stomach cancer for around a year and a half, has recently shared some uplifting news about his health. The singer shared in a new interview that he is currently experiencing a ‘positive trend’ and is hoping to make a comeback on the road this fall.

In an interview with The Oklahoman, via Music Mayhem, Keith shared, “I’m feeling pretty good. … I’m about another eight weeks from my last scan. So, I expect next time I look for that tumor to be even less — and I’ve only got one that’s shown up. Basically, everything is in a real positive trend. You never know with cancer, so you have to prepare.”

“I feel better; I’ve got more wind,” he continued. “And I’m thinking about bringing the band in and setting up, playing two or three days somewhere just to see if I can get through two hours, and if I do, (I’ll) be out on the road this fall.”

He added, “All I got to do is see if I can get through two or three nights of work and get a little break in this chemo, and we’ll go back to work. I’m ready. That’s living.”

Keith’s 19th Annual ‘Toby and Friends Golf Classic’ took place earlier this month and raised a record-setting $1.8 million for the OK Kids Korral, which benefits children battling cancer and their families.
