Many people commented on Keith’s cancer diagnosis, with one person writing, “And he has stomach cancer. Disrespectful comment for her to make.

Keith Announced His Cancer Diagnosis Less Than a Month Ago
Keith announced to his fans on June 12, 2022, that he was diagnosed with stomach cancer and has been going through treatments over the past several months. “Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’ve spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery. So far, so good. I need time to breathe, recover and relax.”
He also said, “I am looking forward to spending this time with my family. But I will see the fans sooner than later. I can’t wait.” His upcoming concert dates were canceled after the announcement. Keith was recently inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
The Oklahoma native has been very involved in supporting children diagnosed with cancer and their families in the past and in 2004, he founded a nonprofit in the state called Ally’s House after the daughter of an original bandmate died, The New York Times reported.
