Eddie Montgomery’s Doctor: “Cancer Was Completely Excised” – On USO TOUR
Some great news for country fans. In a statement released on Montgomery Gentry‘s website, Eddie Montgomery’s doctor, Thomas Kirk Slabaugh, Jr, MD has revealed that Eddie is cancer-free.
“Mr. Montgomery underwent successful robotic surgery for prostate cancer in December,” he states. “His cancer was completely excised and he will not require further treatement for his prostate cancer in the future. Mr. Montgomery has benefited greatly from early detection of prostate cancer with PSA screening.”
Montgomery Gentry will made their first public appearance since Eddie’s successful surgery Friday night at the Grand Ole Opry. Yesterday, the duo embarked on a trip to Seoul, South Korea and Okinawa, Japan to perform for troops and their families as part of an eight day USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour.
