Country music star CHARLIE LOUVIN is hoping for "a miracle" to help him beat pancreatic cancer.
The 82-year-old singer, best known as a member of the Louvin Brothers duo with his sibling Ira, had to cancel a tour which was due to kick off this month (Jul10) to undergo surgery as part of his fight against the disease.
Louvin is set for an operation on 22 July (10) and he's been warned he may have to stay in hospital for up to 30 days following the procedure.
The singer admits he was rocked when he was first told he only had six months to live, but now he is more hopeful and is adamant he can overcome the disease.
He tells the Associated Press, "I guarantee that (the diagnosis) rattled my cage... They can do wonders. And what I need sorely is a miracle, and I believe they're still around. There's miracles that happen in this country every day and I'm wide open for one."
Doctors have now told Louvin he has at least five years to live and he's already planning to resume his trek in August (10).
