Jacko ‘living in constant fear of dying from cancer’May 30th, 2009 - 1:18 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 30 (ANI): Michael Jackson is living under constant fear that he would not survive skin cancer, according to reports.
The King of Pop was diagnosed with the disease last month and had allegedly undergone surgery to get potentially lethal growths from his nose and arm removed.
And the 50-year-old was said to be “very stressed and worried” despite being told his cancer was treatable.
“Michael has become convinced that his nose is going to fall off. The doctors have reassured him that this won’t happen,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.
“But Michael believes that the skin cancer will kill him and lives in constant fear of dying. His chances are excellent but he is very afraid,” the source added.
The Thriller hitmaker’s cancer would reportedly be scraped off layer by layer and he purportedly will not need radiotherapy to cure the condition.
The source added: “It is a huge boost to Michael because it gives him a much better chance of a quicker recovery than the radiotherapy. He is desperate to perform for his fans in London and this is great news for him.”
The singer was due to kick off his much-awaited 50-show run at the 20,000-capacity O2 Arena in London on July 8.
But the opening night of his This Is It tour has been pushed to July 13, while three other gigs, previously slated for July 10, 12 and 14, are not be staged until March next year.
Jackson denied the delay was health-related. (ANI)
