The all around legend that is Ronnie James Dio has been diagnosed with stomach cancer. This follows news of his recent shows being cancelled due to illness. This report is greeted with much sadness. But, fortunately the cancer has been detected in its early stages and is very much treatable.
Dio’s wife and manager, Wendy issued the following 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.
Thoughts are with Dio, his wife and family now and we hope for the best for Dio and to see him back in action.
