Aerosmith’s Tom Hamilton is Cancer Free
Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton, who was diagnosed with throat and tongue cancer in 2006, is finally cancer free.
After he was originally treated in 2006, the cancer returned three years later, but now his doctor has given him the great news that he is cancer free.
Hamilton told BackstageAxxess: “I’m feeling really good. The doctor who treated me in 2009 said, ‘Listen, I can help you in a way that is going to preserve your way of life. But you’re going to have to come in here a lot afterwards for a long time.’”
“I said, ‘Sign me up!’ I go in there about every two to three months. I get looked at by having the doctor put a scope down my throat. It’s a nerve-wracking process, but I don’t have to worry about it for a couple of months and I’m feeling great.”
