Chic co-founder Nile Rodgers reveals he has had kidney cancer surgery

Nile Rodgers in recovery from cancer surgery

He revealed he "did a lot of gigging and a lot of flying" before returning to Brooklyn, New York, to undergo surgery on the cancer at Strong Memorial Hospital.

"You can start dancing, singing and cheering now!" wrote Rodgers, who survived a battle with prostate cancer that began in 2010.

Rodgers said the new growth was discovered during a hospital visit to treat a case of E. Coli he picked up while touring with iconic ensemble Earth, Wind & Fire.

"Well ... it was CANCER!"

The Chic co-founder goes on to say that his prognosis is "100% recovery" and that postponed plans from this year have been lined up for 2018.

Norwegian royal: Kevin Spacey groped me at Nobel Peace Prize concert
In a statement, Spacey said he did not remember the alleged encounter but apologised if such "drunken behaviour" had occurred. The Danish author and playwright said he looked like Spacey's "type" at the time of the incident.

"Six years after that doctor told me to get my affairs in order, today, six years later, I am cancer-free!"

He wrote: "After the last seven years of fantastic life, I would have never believed that my body would be invaded by another cancer". CANCER REALLY? I'm done. "I'm Done. 2018 here I come!", Rodgers explores his journey from that initial cancer diagnosis, and how ever since he's "attacked life with gusto I didn't realize I'd had".

The "Get Lucky" star concluded that the past two years have been horrific following the death of so many legendary stars, while he also revealed that his mother is suffering with Alzheimer's.

Rodgers - the disco-funk icon and producer of artists like David Bowie, Duran Duran and Madonna - wrote that his recent cancer diagnosis capped off two bittersweet years filled with career success and personal loss. My young 1st cousin dropped dead of a coronary with no prior warning ... and my mother is now suffering from Stage-VI Alzheimer's.
