John Berry: Doctors Are ‘Really Pleased’ With Progress in Cancer Battle
Since revealing he had cancer in January of 2019, singer John Berry has always been good about keeping fans abreast of his progress toward being healthy once again. He turned to social media on Monday night (June 24) to give fans the latest update, and the news is good.
“Hey everybody,” Berry begins in an Instagram video that shows him in bed, but looking at the camera and smiling. “I’m just getting ready to go to bed, but I wanted to give you an update. I went to the doctor today and got a great report from Dr. Hunter, and they are really pleased with my progress.”
With that, he bade his fans a hearty good night.
In a YouTube video posted at the time of his diagnosis, Berry told fans that he had first noticed symptoms during his 2018 Christmas tour. An ear, nose and throat specialist initially found a tumor on one of his tonsils and subsequently found that it was larger than they had believed, and it had spread.
Berry's publicist told Taste of Country that he faced a five-week course of treatment, adding that his type of cancer has a cure rate of greater than 90 percent.
Berry is best known for his breakout song “Your Love Amazes Me," along with a string of Top 5 hits including "What's in It for Me," "Standing on the Edge of Goodbye" and "She's Taken the Shine." In more recent years he's become known for the much-anticipated Christmas shows that he performs around the country, featuring selections from his many holiday albums.
Berry is also scheduled to play a string of shows for his fans in July of 2019, making up a number of Songs & Stories With John Berry shows that he was forced to reschedule in February due to his cancer treatments.
