"Over the course of the next several weeks, I'll be transitioning in order to put myself in the best possible position to benefit from the clinical trial that I started a few weeks back," said Thomas via Facebook.
"If you'll be in Nashville for CRS next week, I'll hopefully have a chance to see you, as I'll be traveling through. To all who have ever prayed for, thought of, or took a moment for me, thank you, as you truly have made a difference in my life."
Thomas joined iHeartMedia/Springfield, MA in October 2015 to oversee Country WRNX 100.9 FM, HotAC WHYN 93.1 FM and Talk WHYN 560 AM. This is his third round in the fight against his soft-tissue sarcoma cancer that was first diagnosed in 2013. He encountered tumors again in 2014 and again last May.
Thomas has been a part of the Country music industry for over 30 years with a long career in radio.
