Bruce Corbitt began his fight against esophageal cancer in 2017. He went through extreme radiation and chemotherapy treatment before they could attempt surgery. Just when everyone thought Bruce would surely be out of the woods, his first doctor’s visit in 2018 brought him the horrible news that the cancer was still there and that it was at Stage 4. Doctors gave Bruce a three to six-month prognosis. Due to issues with insurance companies not wanting to approve a second opinion at MD Anderson in Houston, Bruce was forced to use a second opinion in Dallas. His hopes were raised when he was told there was a trial that he could be part of and that there was great results from this trial. A week after signing all the paperwork for the trial treatment, Bruce received a phone call advising him that unfortunately his cancer was one that was not treatable with the trial treatment. Bruce was upset, but he didn’t let that stop him from fighting – he just finished his second round of extreme chemo treatments.
Bruce’s wife, Jeanna Corbitt, says:
I can’t even imagine my world without my husband in it. We both feel so cheated out of our future together at this point. We try to make the best of every moment we have together, even when he feels terrible. He’s such a brave and tough man… MY Superhero!
Dennis Dorsett, who co-organized Thrash Out Cancer with Becky Dorsett, adds:
Bruce is my first thrash metal hero, from the moment we met back in our teenage years it has always been an honor to call him not only a friend but a brother.
Bruce and Jeanna are family first and foremost. Their trials become our trials and we stand together united to help anyway that we can.
Adrenaline PR CEO/President Maria Ferrero says,
Bruce Corbitt is not only a sweetheart and a badass, but someone that I call a friend. He is one of us, and now is the time that we as a community should do anything we can to help.
Bruce’s Warbeast bandmate Scott Shelby adds:
I admire Bruce’s bravery and will to fight his battle with cancer. He has been headstrong in facing the facts and doing what he can to beat it while keeping good spirits and still loving his fans and family. His will is not going to break no matter what the news, and I look up to him for not giving up. His will may beat it alone, you never know. He is a good man and is a great influence to many people. I believe in him and he will win!
