Doug Supernaw is battling Stage IV lung and bladder cancer, according to a post on his official Facebook page on Feb. 2.
Doug was a mainstay on the country charts in the early 1990s with Top 5 hits like “I Don’t Call Him Daddy,” “Enough Hours in the Night” and “Reno.”
According to the Facebook post, Doug was admitted to the hospital after struggling with a prolonged cough. After a battery of tests, a suspicious mass was found in Doug’s lung and his medical team confirmed additional masses in his lymph nodes, bones and bladder. The official diagnoses is “advanced, Stage IV lung and bladder cancer.”
Doug remains in a Houston hospital at this time. A GoFundMe Page has been set up with a goal of raising $10,000. According to the page, Doug has no medical insurance and no income, after canceling a number of shows.
