Country Singer Kevin Sharp Dies at 43

Country musician Kevin Sharp, who defied the odds in a well-publicized battle with cancer in the 1990s prior to becoming a hit artist on the Billboard country charts, has died at the age of 43.

He passed away Saturday evening (April 19) due to ongoing complications from past stomach surgeries and digestive issues, according to the artist’s website.

In 1989, Sharp began to experience excessive dizziness and fatigue. After doctors performed several tests, it was determined that he had Ewing’s sarcoma, a form of blood cancer. He was given slim odds of recovery and went through two years of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, permanently losing his hair as a result.
