Dio Thanks Fans for Cancer Fight Support

Legendary metal frontman Ronnie James Dio has issued his first statement since it was announced over Thanksgiving weekend that he is battling cancer. Here is what he had to say according to BW&BK:

"I'd like to take the time to thank everyone for the most wonderful gift I have ever received - your good wishes, your prayers, your support, your tears and laughter, your anger, your rejoicing, and most of all the unwavering love you have bestowed upon me.

"I guess I've always felt that we were one person and that you've allowed me to be our spokesman, but until this time of my greatest peril, the truth was perhaps slightly hidden. It is hidden no more. Together we shall face the foe and live on to climb higher mountains and explore greater magic. Together we cannot fail."
