The legendary heavy metal singer, Ronnie James Dio, is fighting stomach cancer. In a rare interview, Dio spoke with Steve Simon at KIAH TV in Houston about his treatment and progress.
Luckily for the metal world, Dio mentioned his tumor is shrinking. Every couple of weeks, the singer and his wife, Wendy, visit the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. On occasion, fellow band mate Geezer Butler goes with Dio for support.
According to the report, Dio hopes chemotherapy will end next month so he can return to touring.
Let’s all send good vibes in his direction so he can continue rocking and waving metal horns at fans.
