Bret Michaels: Biopsy Because of Buffett
Bret Michaels recently had a biopsy on his stomach to remove possible cancer cells.
He says, “Just knowing that I absolutely love the outdoors and the sun, but with the recent passing of my friend Jimmy Buffett, I decided it was time for a more recent check up of something I thought was nothing.
“Turns out, it was something. But, thanks to an incredible discovery and biopsy by my doctor Darren West and a quick reaction for this procedure on Friday just before the Texas show, I’m here to say that there’s not enough words of gratitude for all that doctors do for so many of us, which not only may have saved my life, but surely extended it. And although not completely out of the woods yet, I feel strongly all will be great.
“Much love and gratitude to my family that encouraged me to get this check up. So, to all my friends that love the outdoors and the sun as much as I do, all I can say is get checked so we can keep living and rocking the outdoors. You are never out of the fight until the fight is out of you…Remain unbroken, my friends!”
Michaels, who turned 60 in March, was first diagnosed with skin cancer in 2020. Jimmy Buffett was 76 when he succumbed to Merkel Cell Skin Cancer on September 1st.
