Chic - Nile Rodgers Is Cancer-free

Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers is cancer-free.
The veteran music producer has been undergoing radical treatment to battle an aggressive form of cancer since last October (10) and he took to his personal website on Thursday (17Mar11) to confirm news that he has officially overcome the disease.
He says, "Today, my test results said I was 'Cancer-Free'. I was very happy."
The Le Freak hitmaker first took to his website in 2010 to announce his diagnosis and explain to fans why he had recently taken an unexplained hiatus from music.
He said, "I told only a handful of people because I didn't want to worry anyone... I did everything as usual - as best I could - until one day I couldn't. My hand had sudden muscle loss and a number of stressful events followed.
"I've just returned home from the hospital and want to explain my recent disappearance to everybody and share my appreciation of life, music and people."
