Combat Jack has been diagnosed with colon cancer.

Former Hip Hop attorney and blogger, Reggie “Combat Jack” Ossé, recently took to social media to reveal some sad news about his health. Via Twitter, the host of The Combat Jack Show announced that he is battling colon cancer.

“In 7 years of podcasting, I’ve never missed an episode. I got hit with some real life shit. I was recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer. I was rushed to the hospital, had some pretty severe surgery. I’m on the mend right now. I’m about to jump on this journey to health with chemo and alternative medicine.”

Despite his diagnosis, Combat’s attitude is indeed positive, adding, “Take care of your health. Your boi ain’t going nowhere though. We’re gonna keep doing this. Keep rocking’ with us.”
