Former Journey singer Steve Perry revealed that doctors discovered Melanoma skin cancer on his face.  In a blog post, Perry said that it appears that doctors have handled the situation.  Perry writes, "I've had two surgeries in two weeks to remove all the cancer cells and I've been told they think they got it all and no other treatments are required."

In the same post, Perry told a touching story about Kellie Nash, a woman that Perry fell in love with after meeting her in 2011.  At the time Nash, had Stage 4 cancer.  Perry and Nash fell in love and spent about a year and a half together before she passed away in December of 2012.

Perry writes:

"She was so strong, so courageous and we really loved each other so very much.  I've been trying to grieve and not run from this loss so for the last 5 months that's what I've been doing along with recalling everything being in Love with Kellie taught me.   She helped me in so many ways.   I Love and miss her terribly."
