In an exclusive interview with YourEDM, Christopher Mercer (aka Rusko) has announced that he is 100 per cent cancer free.
The news of his illness came this past May after the bass music champion cancelled all his upcoming gigs and shared the news that he would be undergoing treatment for gastric lymphoma, a rare, but treatable type of stomach cancer.
After multiple rounds of chemotherapy over the past few months, Rusko has defeated his cancer and is in good spirits. During the interview, he goes into depth regarding the radical challenges he has faced during his road to recovery.
"For months leading up to that [cancer diagnosis], I had been sick, I had been vomiting a lot at night and having really bad back pains and chest pains, which turns out, it was tumors. There was actually tumors inside my body that was pressing on my spine…and my rib cage," he explains. However, he ends in high spirits thanks to the good news. “I’ve been reset and I have the chance to come at it again, fresh!” he said. We can't wait!
