Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood revealed he is cancer-free again after having secretly battled the disease for the second time during the pandemic.

"I’ve had cancer two different ways now," the 73-year-old rocker said in an interview with British news outlet The Sun on April 26. "I had lung cancer… and I had small-cell more recently that I fought in the last lockdown."

Fortunately, Wood said he's received "the all-clear" from his doctors and is now cancer-free. The rocker, who has a history of addiction, admitted, "I’m going through a lot of problems now, but throughout my recovery, you have to let it go." Wood credited his recovery to a "higher power." 

Unfortunately, no matter your status in life, "the big C" does not discriminate.
