Bruce Corbitt Admitted To Hospital For Esophageal Tumor

After undergoing heart surgery back in 2015, there have been more health issues lately for Bruce Corbitt (Warbeast / Rigor Mortis).

Bruce has been posting a series of updates from the emergency room via Facebook since late last night, and has now issued the following update about the apparent cause of his bleeding issue:

"Worst news possible. I have an esophageal tumor. In most cases, esophageal cancer is a treatable disease, but it is rarely curable.

"The overall 5-year survival rate in patients amenable to definitive treatment ranges from 5% to 30%. The occasional patient with very early disease has a better chance of survival.

"They're about to test if already cancerous. I'm going to be here for a long time. Devastated! I'm doomed and my time is short. Love y'all!"

This is terrible news. Bruce is a great guy and singer. The video I saw he says he's going to have to retire his singing career. Such a shame, first Mike now him. This could be the end, at the least of his career, of a Texas metal legend.

His first rounds of chemo are going well and he performed over the weekend. Benefits are popping up all over Texas in place of the Warbeast CD release parties. This story has no ending at present and I refuse to read it as an ending.
