Update on Dr. Death Steve Williams
Dr. Death Steve Williams is back in the hospital for further surgery to treat throat cancer. Williams underwent a laryngectomy (removal of the voice box) earlier this month.
This time the doctors will be taking a piece of skin from WilliamsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢?? leg and use it to patch a hole in his throat. The procedure takes approximately 10 hours, and Williams will be out for approximately 24 hours.
The surgery is being done in hopes that Williams will eventually be able to speak again.
Williams appreciates all of the support he has received from the WWE fans and asks for their continued support and prayers in this time of need.
