Kathy Brown cancer Type: Stage 4 Lung cancer
Stage 4 lung cancer is an advanced and often terminal stage of lung cancer. In this stage, the cancer has typically spread (metastasized) from the lungs to other body parts such as distant lymph nodes, other organs, or bones.
It is characterized by a higher level of severity and complexity compared to earlier stages of lung cancer, making it more challenging to treat and manage.
Patients with stage 4 lung cancer often require comprehensive and aggressive medical care, which may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapies, and palliative care to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
House music legend’s health update
Kathy Brown’s daughter, Latisha Green, is spearheading this fundraising effort and has shared the following statement regarding her beloved mother’s cancer battle.
Last week, we received the shocking news that my mother, an internationally celebrated house music vocalist and chart-topping artist, has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that has already metastasized to her brain.
This devastating revelation came after she was urgently admitted to the ICU in Charleston, South Carolina, following a recent visit. Immediate surgery was performed to alleviate the brain swelling, and she is currently in the process of recovery. However, the road ahead presents challenges unlike any she has ever faced.
As we grapple with the reality of this news, we are not only confronted with the physical and medical hurdles but also the significant financial burdens associated with her treatment.
Like many artists who have dedicated their careers to dance music, the inability to perform live means there is little to no opportunity to earn an income. My mother has poured her heart and soul into stages and dance floors worldwide for over three decades, and now, more than ever, she needs your love and support.
My siblings and I are committed to doing everything we can to provide for her, but the mounting costs of medical expenses and monthly bills are overwhelming.
The London-based record label ‘Revival,’ with which she has recently collaborated, has generously offered to match contributions up to $10,000.
“Wishing you a swift and complete recovery, Kathy. Your strength and resilience are an inspiration to us all. Our thoughts and positive energy are with you on this journey. Get well soon!”
