Warbeast vocalist gives positive update on cancer battle
As you may recall, Warbeast frontman Bruce Corbitt was in bad shape at the start of 2018. Battling esophageal cancer, Corbitt was told by his doctors that treatment was not working and would likely never work, rendering him "devastated, discouraged, depressed, angry, upset," and all but hopeless. Fortunately, things appear to have taken a dramatic turn for the better in recent weeks. Yesterday Corbitt provided a video update during which he shared the news:
"I can't believe it, I'm in shock, I just got some of the best news. I mean, after all these chemo sessions and bloodwork, I've never had such improvement in just two weeks on my own... my body doing this on its own with no help. All my white blood cells, platelets, everything has all shot up back to normal. We can't believe it, we're in shock. They also got me approved to get the shot to make sure they stay up. So I'm good to go now. Things are back to normal, my body restored itself, I've got the shot to help me fight, to keep it up there, and there's no stopping me now. We know something's going on; we're beating this cancer, because it wouldn't go up that fast on its own without the shots. It's a miracle, and I'm going to take it just as that."You can watch his full update below.
