On his Twitter page, Country Music’s Toby Keith stated he was diagnosed with stomach cancer last fall.
“I’ve spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery” Keith said in the tweet. “So far, so good. I need time to breath, recover and relax.”

Sunday afternoon’s announcement was coupled with an announcement on the Ohio State Fair’s twitter page: “Our hearts go out to Toby Keith as he courageously battles cancer. Tickets purchased from Ticketmaster for his #ohiostatefair show on July 28, which has been cancelled, will be automatically refunded. Any information about an alternate concert on July 28 is forthcoming.”
