The Mavericks Lead Singer Raul Malo Reveals Health Update

Mavericks frontman Raul Malo has publicly announced that he is receiving treatment for cancer. This came to light in a video on the group’s Instagram page in which Malo said that he had found cancerous spots in his digestive system after a recent physical, CAT scan, and colonoscopy.

He said that although he had received this diagnosis, he is currently in good hands with a top team of doctors in Nashville and observed that the cancer is common and treatable.

Raul Malo Said: “My odds are good. Fortunately, we have a plan in place, and I’m feeling great”

Malo shared the following  “Recently, the doctors found a few cancerous spots in my digestive system. Obviously, this isn’t the news I was hoping to get, or to share with you all. They’ve reassured me this is a very common form of cancer, and my odds are good. Fortunately, we have a plan in place, and I’m feeling great! I’ll continue to be as active as possible throughout these treatments, but it does mean a few shows may be affected this year, and we’ll have more information for you as soon as possible on that.

He further said. “But most importantly, I wanted to say to my fellow men out there, and anyone who may be reading this — It’s important to take care of your health, and to see a doctor for checkups, especially if something is wrong. With modern medicine, these types of cancer are very survivable with proper treatment, but if you don’t get checked, you’ll never know. It’s important to do it for your family, the people around you, and those you love.

He concluded his statements by saying.“I’m sharing this message in the spirit of transparency and honesty, as you all have stuck with us throughout these 35 crazy years of music, shows, breaking up, & getting back together – we’ve even survived a pandemic together,” he continued, “We’ll get through this just like we have everything else. In the meantime, I want you to know I’m not going anywhere, and I look forward to seeing you all out on the road again soon.”

Malo shared his gratitude and thankfulness to his fans for looking out for him and also thanked them for the support that they showed to him for the group’s recent album titled album ‘Moon & Stars’, which was released on May 17.
