VAN HALEN guitarist Eddie Van Halen has confirmed that he is undergoing treatment for cancer. In a statement posted on the group's official web site, he writes, 'I'm sorry for having waited so long to address this issue personally. But, cancer can be a very unique and private matter to deal with. So, I think it's about time to tell you where I'm at.

...

'I was examined by three oncologists and three head &amp neck surgeons at Cedars Sinai [Medical Center in Los Angeles] just before spring break and I was told that I'm healthier than ever and beating cancer,' the statement continues. 'Although it's hard to say when, there's a good chance I will be cancer free in the near future. I just want to thank all of you for your concern and support.'

...

Meanwhile, former VAN HALEN lead singer David Lee Roth, who confirmed last week that he and his former bandmates had written three songs together last year, said in a statement, 'I was stunned this morning to learn Eddie Van Halen has cancer. My condolences. You can whip this, champ.'
