One Year Later: Poison's Rikki Rockett Is Still Cancer-Free

March 9, 2017

A year has passed since Poison drummer Rikki Rockett undergone an experimental treatment for his oral cancer, and he is happy to report that he is still cancer free!

After he was diagnosed with oral cancer two years ago, Rockett was faced with three very difficult decisions. According to his Facebook, those were:

"1) Have surgery that would render me unable to ever speak again. 

2) Try a different chemo that would only buy me time

3) Try a clinical trial of a new drug combination of immunotherapy. However, if it didn't work, it might be too late to change course and save me."
