Country Stars Who Stand Up Against Cancer

There are many — too many — country stars who have had cancer or have been personally affected by it in some way. The truth is, almost everyone knows someone who’s battling against the horrific disease, and it does not discriminate based on age, fame, fortune or even good health.

In the photo gallery above, The Boot highlights those country artists who have had cancer, beat cancer, had someone close to them affected by cancer or champion cancer-related causes. As of 2013, 7.6 million people per year were dying from cancer worldwide, so it’s heartening to see that so many country stars are among those fighting against it.

Click through the gallery above to learn more about how each country artist has been touched by cancer.
