Kenny Chesney Does Not Have Cancer
The American singer and songwriter do not suffer from chronic fatal diseases like cancer. He is fit and healthy. Instead, he has a story associated with his cancer-battling fan.
During one of his concerts in 2016 as part of Spread the Love Tour, Chesney noticed Kelly Swanson, his fan who was a cancer patient, in the crowd. Chesney noticed the fan because of the sign 'Beatin' Cancer' she was holding. Seeing her, Chesney took her hand and began singing the lyrics of Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds," which included the line "Every little thing is going to be alright."
Swanson was sporting a baseball cap over her shaved head then. Chesney dragged her onto the stage, took off his cowboy hat and her cap, then leaned in to touch their heads together. Chesney blew her a kiss and caressed her head as they exchanged hugs. Chasney continued singing for her after that. His tenderness won the hearts of many.
Another linkage of Chesney with cancer is that he lost his longtime friend Lisa Lee to brain cancer in 2021.
