Atlanta radio host, Ryan Cameron, updates his fans regarding his health condition. Wednesday, he assured them that he is recuperating from sepsis and heart valve surgery.
What We Know:
- During a brief conversation on air from the hospital, Cameron told Rashan Ali, who is covering for him on the R&B radio station, that he tested negative for COVID-19.
- Unfortunately, he had sepsis, a potentially life-threatening condition caused by the body’s extreme response to an infection. He said he entered the hospital a couple of weeks ago with fever and chills. “I was unconscious through Easter,” he told Ali. “Infection had taken over my entire body.”
- He continued to explain that when he was age 30, he found out he had a congenital heart issue called mitral valve regurgitation, when your heart’s mitral valve doesn’t close tightly, allowing blood to flow backward in your heart.
- A doctor asserted to him that it was not serious, but he may need surgery in his 60s and 70s. It happened sooner than expected because he is now 54.
- Cameron, who is normally heard afternoons on Majic, said he is feeling better but will speak more about his situation on air on Friday.
- “I received every message and text,” he said. “Your boy will be back soon!”
The Georgia Radio Hall of Fame recipient and Atlanta native has been on air on local radio for nearly three decades on V-103 (twice), Hot 97.5 (later 107.9) and now Majic.
