Is John Tesh all right? After a cancer relapse in 2020, composer was ‘back in the trenches.’
After overcoming the first battle against all odds, the pianist opens out about his second struggle with the disease.
After his first cancer diagnosis in 2015, pianist and composer John Tesh was advised to get his affairs in order. Despite the fact that it’s been almost half a decade, he’s still alive and well, and he’s not about to give up. Tesh stated in a new interview that he was in readmission in October 2020, but that he is doing even better this time. He thanks his wife, actress Connie Sellecca, for the improvement, saying, “I wouldn’t have made it without her.” Tesh is far from the lone celebrity on the verge of death. Nicholas Brendon, as we reported in early September, is paralyzed and in “immense suffering,” yet he is alive and fighting his Cauda equina syndrome diagnosis. Tom Felton, the star of the ‘Harry Potter’ films, collapsed during a celebrity golf tournament in late September but is now recovering. We also reported on WWE superstar Triple H’s cardiac incident, which necessitated surgery, in the same month.

Tesh drank heavily in addition to Vicodin, claiming, “people look the other way when you’re drinking scotch every night and mixing the two.” He appeared to be resigned to the inevitable, but his wife quickly realized that this was not the end.
“At the end of the day, my wife and I went toe-to-toe, and she said, ‘I’m not going to put up with this.’ This is also a struggle I’m fighting. ‘And you’re giving up,’ says the narrator. “I wouldn’t have made it if she hadn’t been my advocate and such a wonderful study of prostate cancer,” he added.
