Eddie Money has revealed that he has been diagnosed with stage four esophageal cancer. According to TMZ, sources say that the “Take Me Home Tonight” singer revealed the news during season two of his reality show Real Money.
Eddie received the diagnosis late last year during a regularly scheduled checkup with his doctor. The cancer started in Eddie's esophagus and has sadly spread to other parts of his body.
In a clip posted on TMZ, Money said, “I thought I was going in to get a checkup, and he told me that, uh, I got cancer. . . . It hit me really, really hard. I don’t want to keep the fact that I have cancer from everybody. I want to be honest with everybody. . . . 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.”
Despite the diagnosis, Eddie continued to shoot his reality show and has been touring nonstop while getting treatment.
Sources say that Eddie will discuss his cancer treatments while cameras are rolling for his reality show.
The second season of Real Money begins on September 12th on AXS TV.
