Eddie Money has been diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer. He shared that information in a advance promo for an episode of his reality TV show, Real Money.
The 70-year-old, who underwent heart valve replacement surgery in the spring, says he found out about the cancer last year during a routine visit to his doctor. “I thought I was going in to get a checkup, and he told me that I got cancer... It hit me really, really hard. I don’t want to keep the fact that I have cancer from everybody. It’s not honest. I want to be honest with everybody.”
His wife Laurie adds that the cancer has spread to his liver.
"Am I going to live a long time?" asks Eddie. "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.”
