CBS RADIO Hot AC WOMX (MIX 105.1)/ORLANDO morning show host SCOTT MCKENZIE and his family are in our thoughts TODAY (8/10) as he unveils on the station website that his battle with cancer is not going well.
He writes, "as you may have noticed, I’ve been off the air for over a month lately, while attempting to be accepted into a clinical trial in PHILADELPHIA. The process has been the ultimate roller coaster as one day my blood cells have cooperated, and the next day, they haven’t. It’s literally been day to day, with my last stay extending 30 days during which I became quite sick."
"What I haven’t told anybody until this moment," he continues, "is that the reason I was in the hospital for so long is that this was our final viable attempt. With my body so beaten up by cancer and chemo, it had to work, or we had to face a hard reality. We returned from PHILLY on WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5th. Upon our return, my first call was to my doctor, and after a lot of thinking, my 2nd call was to hospice. That evening they were at our door talking about their wonderful services. I just couldn’t believe they were talking to me. Final healthcare arrangements have been made, and now we begin the focus on my comfort as I say my goodbyes."
