Producer and singer Nile Rodgers has opened up about his battle with an aggressive form of cancer.
Nile Rodgers, 58, recently took time off from music after discovering he has cancer.
Rodgers wrote on his Website, “On October 27, 2010, I found out I had aggressive cancer. In an instant, everything in my happy-music universe imploded. After consulting with numerous doctors, I decided to have radical surgery to try and remove the cancer in its entirety.
“I told only a handful of people because I didn’t want to worry anyone, especially my family around the holidays. I did everything as usual – as best I could – until one day I couldn’t. My hand had sudden muscle loss and a number of stressful events followed.
“I’ve just returned home from the hospital and want to explain my recent disappearance to everybody and share my appreciation of life, music and people.”
