Sharon Jones set to undergo Chemotherapy following Cancer surgery. The American soul/funk singer known as the lead singer of Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings is on the long road as part of fighting the decease.
She also says that she is feeling”stronger and more focused” over recovering each and every day. The band had to exit some shows over the Summer, 2013 as she was diagnosed with a bile duct tumour. In June 2013, she had a surgery to remove the growth and is taking a course to try and beat the disease.
Jones has opened up about her ongoing battle in a post on her Facebook.com page, revealing she is determined to get better so she can get back on stage. She writes,
“I’ve been spending my time recovering in a beautiful spot in upstate New York, and I really couldn’t be luckier to have such amazing support from my friends, family and fans.
“Although my surgery to remove my cancer in June was successful, my doctor recommended that I do a 6 month course of preventative chemotherapy, which I started a month ago. I wish I could say it’s been a breeze, but this is looking to be the most challenging part yet.
“Thankfully, I’m feeling stronger and more focused on getting back out on stage every day.”
