Steve Perry Has Cancer Surgery

06/10/2013
.
(Classic Rock) Former Journey singer Steve Perry has revealed that he recently underwent cancer treatment, just five months after the love of his life died of the disease.

He met psychologist Kellie Nash in 2011 after she'd already undergone a double mastectomy, then been told the cancer had returned. He only got to spend a year and a half with her before she passed away last December. And three weeks ago, he had a mole removed from his face, which was then found to be cancerous.

"Three weeks ago a routine mole was taken off my face and the lab report came back Melanoma skin cancer," Perry says in an online blog. "I've had two surgeries in two weeks to remove all the cancer cells and I've been told they think they got it all and no other treatments are required."

Perry further explains how he saw Nash in a TV documentary and asked to make contact. Two weeks later they went to dinner, and, he says: "I finally found her we both knew we were meant to be together."

He goes on: "She continued chemo from May into December, when headaches started; cancer had gone to her brain. She started brain radiation and the chemo continued. One night she told me she just couldn't do it any more, and would I be angry if she stopped everything? I told her that never would I ever be angry with her."

After a "rough" few months, Nash heard of a new form of treatment which was available in New York, so the couple moved there from California in February 2012, where the medication "kept her alive with quality of life." He had a lot more to say.
