In June, Money continued recovery after undergoing a heart valve procedure . His family thanked his friends and fans for their support. By July, the recuperation process was still on-going, but Money needed to “ postpone all tour dates ” and the release of his album.
In August, during an episode of his ATX show Real Money , the musician revealed his cancer battle.
“I thought I was going in for a check-up and [the doctor] told me I have cancer,” Money said. “We found out that I had cancer and that it was stage 4 and that it was in my liver and my lymph nodes and a little bit in my stomach.” He added, “It hit me really, really hard.”
On Monday, TMZ reported Money was forced to stop his cancer treatment due to complications with his heart valve surgery.
