According to a since-deleted Facebook post made by Glenn Cosby’s V-103, Tina Turner is fighting stomach cancer. The legendary singer suffered a stroke and her body is allegedly rejecting a kidney transplant she recently had.
The singer’s camp has yet to make an announcement, however, Turner did reveal she had a kidney transplant and suffered a stroke in her memoir after being diagnosed with intestinal cancer in January 2016.
Her doctors reportedly treated her cancer by removing part of her intestine, but her kidneys worsened. Her husband gave her one of his kidneys during a successful transplant in April 2017, but now it appears things have taken a turn, according to The Jasmine Brand.
Here’s what she wrote in her memoir:
“My body keeps trying to reject the new kidney, which is not uncommon after a transplant. Sometimes, the treatment involves spending more time in the hospital, and it comes with some unpleasant side effects, including dizziness, forgetfulness, anxiety and the occasional bout of insane diarrhea.”
