LeDoux Undergoing Treatment for Cancer
NASHVILLE - November 4, 2004—American music legend, and rodeo champion Chris LeDoux is preparing to take on another health battle. LeDoux is undergoing radiation therapy for cancer. He has only cancelled three shows while he undergoes the required treatment but is fully expected to be back performing his legendary live shows as soon as possible.
"I know it's going to be tough" said Chris, "but I'm confident that I can put this behind me, and get back to my regular ranch and concert schedule."
In 2000 LeDoux was diagnosed with a liver disease that eventually required him to undergo a liver transplant. He beat the odds and was soon back to doing what he loves – performing and being on the road. “The road energizes you,” he once told Billboard magazine. “There’s something about Hercules getting his strength from the earth and I get mine from just moving. If you’re stuck in the same spot every day, life can get pretty humdrum and you lose your appreciation for life. I like being on the road and seeing new faces.”
