80's Rocker Eddie Money Suffering Life-Threatening IIlness

August 26, 2019

EDDIE MONEY is battling stage 4 esophageal cancer.  He makes the announcement on an upcoming episode of his AXS TV series "Real Money".

He says, quote, "I thought I was going in for a check-up and [the doctor] told me I have cancer.

"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."

But he adds, quote, "I want people to know that . . . not everybody dies from cancer like they did in the Fifties and Sixties.  Am I going to 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." 

In July, Eddie canceled his summer tour after he developed pneumonia while recovering from heart valve surgery.  But his heart condition was NOT related to the cancer.
