Toby Keith Gives Health Update, Hopes To Tour This Fall


Toby Keith was on hand at his annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic pre-tournament gala earlier this month where he gave an update on his health in the midst of his battle with stomach cancer. He told The Oklahoman, “I’m feeling pretty good. … I’m about another eight weeks from my last scan. So, I expect next time I look for that tumor to be even less — and I’ve only got one that’s shown up. Basically, everything is in a real positive trend. You never know with cancer, so you have to prepare.”

Toby shared that his goal is to return to touring sometime this fall. He explained, “I feel better; I’ve got more wind. And I’m thinking about bringing the band in and setting up, playing two or three days somewhere just to see if I can get through two hours, and if I do, (I’ll) be out on the road this fall.”

The singer is still undergoing chemotherapy and immunotherapy in addition to working with a nutritionist.

Toby first shared his cancer diagnosis with fans in June of last year.

His 19th Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic raised a record $1.8 million in support of OK Kids Korral, the cost-free home for families of children battling cancer.
