Doug Supernaw has been diagnosed with Stage IV lung and bladder cancer. The "I Don't Call Him Daddy" singer is currently hospitalized and working with doctors to determine a course of treatment, according to a post on his official Facebook page. The post shares that Supernaw suffered a "prolonged cough," and was admitted to a hospital in Houston, TX with an initial diagnosis of pneumonia. Further tests showed fluid on Supernaw's heart and lungs, and a "suspicious mass" in his right lung. Later testing confirmed several masses in his lungs, lymph nodes, bones and bladder.
According to Supernaw's Facebook page, the 58-year-old "remains in the hospital, awaiting more testing, while determining a treatment path."
His latest project was a greatest hits compilation, which was released in the spring of 2017 and included two new songs.
