(WTNH) — Eddie Money is battling stage 4 Esophageal Cancer.

The 70-year-old rock singer said he went in for a checkup last fall and ended up with a cancer diagnosis.

Money said the cancer has spread to his liver and stomach.

The Associated Press reports Money has had numerous health problems recently including heart valve surgery earlier this year and pneumonia after the procedure, leading to his cancellation of a planned summer tour.

His career spans more than 40 years, and includes hits such as “Think I’m in Love,” “Take me Home Tonight,” and “Two Tickets to Paradise.”
