According to an article posted Nov. 25 on Blabbermouth.net, Ronnie James Dio's wife and manager, Wendy Dio issued a statement that said that the legendary Rainbow and Black Sabbath frontman had been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer. Here's her full statement:

"Ronnie has been diagnosed with the early stages of stomach cancer. We are starting treatment immediately at the Mayo Clinic. After he kills this dragon, Ronnie will be back on stage, where he belongs, doing what he loves best, performing for his fans.

"Thanks to all the friends and fans around the world that have sent well wishes. This has really helped to keep his spirit up.

"Long Live Rock and Roll, Long Live Ronnie James Dio"

Dio was forced to cancel his European tour last week when he became ill and was hospitalized.

Dio, who rose to fame as the lead singer of Rainbow in the 1970s, is best known for replacing Ozzy Osbourne as the singer for Black Sabbath, and for his work in the 1980s in his own band, Dio.

His albums include "Heaven & Hell" and "Mob Rules" by Black Sabbath, as well as "Holy Diver" with Dio, and many others. His most recent album is "The Devil You Know" with Heaven & Hell — made up of the members of his incarnation of Black Sabbath.

He is a legend and he changed my life with his tunes man. Beat this Dio. The world needs Holy Diver, The Last in Line, Stand up and Shout, Children of Sea, and Heaven and Hell live as often as possible.

Stomach Cancer is a beast for sure. Only 1 in 5 usually have a survival rate of more than 5 years. If Dio manages to beat this I doubt very much he will ever sing on stage again.

Of all random things that could take dio down...Stomach cancer? I woulda thought he would go out fighting a dragon or a chimaira or something epic using a sword made of rainbows and fire. This is like Steve Irwin getting shanked by that f***in retard fish.

You can do this, Ronnie.
Early stages, hasn't metastasized, and the patient has a willpower like no other. I'm sure Dio will slay this and come back stronger than ever! His music has been a touchstone throughout my life, and I finally saw him live last year with H&H. We're not even THINKING of saying goodbye to that power and vitality, that musical genius and dedication.
