Kenny Rogers Uses Instagram to Show Off Cancer Treatment


Taking a page from the playbook of actor Hugh Jackman, country legend Kenny Rogers went on Instagram to show off his recent treatment for skin cancer.

The 75 year-old singer recently had cancer cells removed from his face and, like Jackman, posted a picture on Instagram.

In the caption, he joked,

"... but you should see the other guy!"

He then explained,

"Had a bit of skin cancer removed today – I recommend everyone go get checked, especially since May is National Skin Cancer Detection & Prevention Month. Don't worry though, I'm gonna look great in Knoxville this weekend!"
