Gigionthat.com has learned the man behind the popular “Combat Jack Show” podcast has been diagnosed with colon cancer, the show’s host announced Monday afternoon. Reggie Ossé released a statement that was posted to Twitter.
Internets, what’s up? It’s your man Combat Jack. In 7 years of podcasting, I’ve never missed an episode. I got hit with some real life sh-t.
I was recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer. I was rushed to the hospital, had some pretty severe surgery.
I’m on the mend right now. I’m about to jump on this journey to health with chemo and alternative medicine.
Take care of your health. Your boy ain’t going nowhere though. We’re gonna keep doing this. Keep rocking with us.
