TRAGIC TINA TURNER FACING GRIM DEATH!
ROCKED by illness and heartache, sickly singer Tina Turner has been hit with a deadly stomach cancer diagnosis, according to chilling reports — and insiders fear she may have just six months to live!
The devastating news bared by Glenn Cosby’s V103 radio show comes as the superstar, 78, is still reeling over her 59-year-old son Craig’s death in July from a selfinflicted gunshot wound.
“Tina had a fondness for Craig because he represented a more innocent time in her life,” says a source, who calls his suicide the kind of tragedy “she won’t recover from.”
Tina herself said scattering her firstborn’s ashes was her “saddest day” as a mother.
Though the plucky singer has been no stranger to comebacks, the deck is stacked against her, pals fear.
Having barely recovered from a 2013 stroke, Tina later learned she had intestinal cancer and needed a kidney transplant. Though her hubby, Erwin Bach, gave her one of his own kidneys in 2016, her body is now rejecting the life-saving organ!
Tina did not comment on the reports sweeping the internet,

but New York internist Dr. Stuart Fischer, who has not treated the star, says the new stomach cancer “is a virtual death sentence” based on her physical problems.
“The stomach cancer itself can be a fatal diagnosis, but the rejected kidney makes her prognosis even worse!” he says.
Even Tina admitted treatment for cancer can be harmful for an organ recipient after coming clean about her earlier bout with the potentially fatal disease.
“The drugs used to control my cancer would be in direct conflict with the drugs necessary for a successful transplant,” she said in her memoir, My Love Story.
“Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are immunosuppressants and leave the patient vulnerable to infection,” Dr. Fischer notes. “That would be devastating to the kidney recipient.”
Prior to her transplant, Tina said she “didn’t mind the thought of dying” before her husband was found to be a compatible donor. But her last days may now be a cold, hard reality, because if her kidney needs to be removed, Dr. Fischer believes her time will be short — and grim.
“She would need to be placed back on dialysis, which would make for a brief and horrible life,” Dr. Fischer says. “She’d have to pray to beat the odds to live more than six months.”
