Country music artist Toby Keith shared on social media that he has been diagnosed with stomach cancer.
Over the past six months the award-winning entertainer has been receiving chemotherapy, radiation, and undergoing surgery.
“So far, so good,” the Oklahoma native wrote. “I need time to breathe, recover and relax. I am looking forward to spending this time with my family. But I will see the fans sooner than later. I can’t wait.”
