• Virgil Is Also Dealing With Cancer, Needs Your Help
Last month, Old School WWF Veteran Virgil shared the following news about his health:
“Dearest a Meatsauce Mafia. I am grateful that I can communicate something that has happened to me. Unfortunately I have some really hard news to share.
If you were wondering why I haven’t been so engaged over the last few weeks it’s because I was given bad news.
Since Mania weekend (of all weekends) I was not feeling so great. Something wasn’t right. My head, my arm and my heart . When I came back from Dallas I ended up going to the Doctor and they discovered a whole bunch of issues.
For starters – without me knowing, over the past few months the Doctor had identified that I suffered 2 massive strokes. Like I didn’t even have a clue till I started not working with 1 of my arms. It’s basically not able to do anything. This was the decent news.
The worse news is that I have been told that I am fighting with an early stage of dementia. The years of taking the big main event bump every night (that nobody else wanted to take) had started to affect me.
I’m nervous I’m scared & God knows I can’t afford 2 get through this & even make a living. It’s really sad as all I want to do is have fun & do what I always do. Survive. What am I asking for? Well 4 starters, my roommate and team have helped me with this page to help me get buy.
I’ll also sell autographs, video shoutouts or even if you could download my $2 video game (ON BOTH IOS AND ANDROID JUST LOOK UP MEATSAUCE MADNESS). It means EVERYTHING. I am asking you to send this out to all your friends, family or anyone that you ever thought loved Wrestling.
It all helps. I ain’t looking for sympathy. I am looking for the love I have Poured into this business to hopefully carry me through this sh*tty time. I did my time. I took my lumps. Now I am just trying to survive. Hope this makes sense. Love you all.”
In an update, Virgil has revealed that he’s also dealing with colon cancer. Below is what he tweeted:
“It’s really sh*tty right now. To make things worse I now have stage 2 colon cancer. I am a fighter but need your help. I cannot afford any of the medical bills and would love your support.”
It’s really shitty right now. Too make things worse I know have stage 2 colon cancer. I am a fighter but need your help. I cannot afford any of the medical bills and would love your support. https://t.co/PG7VkpQWxP love you guys pic.twitter.com/6EF1YzT7Ai
