Country music star Toby Keith shared with fans on Sunday that he’s battling stomach cancer.

The 60-year-old, award-winning musician gave a quick update about his medical issues with posts on Instagram and Twitter.

“Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer,” he wrote. “I’ve spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery. So far, so good. I need time to breathe, recover and relax.”

He added: “I am looking forward to spending this time with my family. But I will see the fans sooner than later. I can’t wait.”
