God is good!

Cha Cha Slide creator DJ Casper is celebrating in a major way. He revealed that he was diagnosed with kidney and liver cancer in 2016. In an interview he stated:

“In 2016, they diagnosed me with two forms of cancer. Renal and neuroendocrine, which is kidney and liver.”

He also revealed that he had a few health scares.

“I was lead poisoned at 24 months and at 22 [years old] I had a brain aneurysm,” he shared.

However, after a long battle, he is now cancer-free.

“Maybe in the process of me going through the cancer situation, that was God’s way of just slowing me down just a little bit,” he said. “But he kept me here for a reason, definitely for a reason.”

In more news, August 2020 will be the 20th anniversary of his famous dance anthem.
