COUNTRYNOW.COM – Toby Keith says he is feeling “pretty good” and reveals he is trying other treatment options amid his ongoing battle with stomach cancer.
The country music icon first shared his diagnosis with fans back in June of 2022 and since then, he has taken the necessary measures to spend time with family, focus on his health, and slowly creep his way back into the spotlight.
According to Keith’s recent guest appearance on the sports podcast, Sellout Crowd, it appears that he is still taking things day by day and doing everything he can to try the “best treatments” available to him.
“It’s a rollercoaster all the time with this stuff. I have the resources financially and otherwise to get the best treatments I can get. They’re taking great care of me and I’m getting all the latest stuff you can get,” he said during the segment dubbed Conversations with Coach.
“In fact, I’m going to Florida to see another guy down there that’s got some other kind of treatments and I’m trying ’em all I’m throwing the kitchen sink at it.”
Even in this difficult time, Keith continues to hold onto the positives, like being able to use his platform to spread awareness and potentially even help others who are fighting their own battles with cancer.
“Cancer’s an island and you’re on a boat and nobody goes over to that island when you don’t have it. And as soon as you crash land on it, there’s a lot of boats there.
