Berner is asking fans to send good energy his way after being diagnosed with cancer. The San Francisco rapper and Cookies founder revealed the troubling news in an Instagram post on Wednesday (Oct. 13).

“I think what made Cookies so special and my music career so special was always being transparent and sharing my journey with you guys. So I figured instead of fighting this alone, I wanted the people who got me where I’m at today to fight with me,” he wrote. “Three weeks ago they founded traces of cancer in a series of blood tests. Today I went in for a procedure hoping to get off easy and found out I have a major fight ahead of me. If you know me, this has always been my biggest fear, but I am content with where I’m at and what I’m facing as well as every possible outcome.”

Berner said he’ll spend the next month fighting the cancer “as aggressively as possible,” finishing his album and planning the next steps for Cookies, his successful cannabis brand.

“As I am strong and want to have as much faith as possible, I also am being realistic,” he wrote. “I want Cookies to live forever and I want my team to have a clear direction of what my vision is, lots of menu planning to do with my breeders and with my partners… I love all of you guys so much and feel so blessed to have been able to accomplish half the things I did and really hope to be able to stick around and do a bunch more.”

The rapper, who is signed to Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang Entertainment, asked friends and fans to send their “good energy my way” and said he’ll be back in the spotlight “as soon as my mind and body permits.”

“I really want to encourage everyone to pay attention to their body and health,” he added. “If you have cancer in your family, there [are] blood tests you can take like I did to check for over 40 kinds of cancer. I’m so glad I did because knowing is half the battle. It’s time for the biggest challenge of my life and I’m ready!”

Berner did not disclose what kind of cancer he was diagnosed with or at what stage. We at REVOLT wish him a speedy recovery. See his post below.
