Here’s her full statement:
“Ronnie has been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer. We are starting treatment immediately at the Mayo Clinic. After he kills this dragon, Ronnie will be back on stage, where he belongs, doing what he loves best, performing for his fans. Thanks to all the friends and fans around the world that have sent well wishes. This has really helped to keep his spirit up.
Long Live Rock and Roll, Long Live Ronnie James Dio”
Dio was forced to cancel his European tour last week when he became ill and was hospitalized. This is certainly a huge bummer! My thoughts are with the Dio family.
You’ve slayed dragons and wizards, Dio…a little cancer is petty bullshit. You show that cancer who’s boss!
