We previously reported that Bobby Womack, soul legend, had been in the hospital with pneumonia and diagnosed with colon cancer but we recently mentioned he was finally cancer free!
A tumor was removed and now the doctors are saying he's in the clear.
Even though he's recovering now, his doctors are so shocked he survived.
"Can I tell you the honest truth? I've been through a lot, more than I've ever been through in my life, in the last two months. You know, I had prostate cancer, then they got rid of that and discovered I had colon cancer. Then after that my lungs completely shut down and they had to put me on a machine and I was out in a coma for 10 days. Then after that I had walking pneumonia - twice. So there's only so much the body can take."
He's already wanting to go back on tour, saying:
"I want to go back to work, but the doctor says, 'Man, you've got to rest 10 days and not do Nothing.' He said, 'Because we done lost you,' and he said, 'It's a miracle you're walking around.'"
Wow. We're glad he got his miracle and survived.
Hopefully soon he'll be back on tour and done with all the health scares.
