Bassist Wayman Tisdale Undergoes Surgery

Wayman Tisdale, recording artist, composer, former NBA superstar and Gold Medal Olympian, recently underwent surgery to remove a recurrent, cancerous tumor. After learning of his relapse, Tisdale elected to have surgery that will fully assure his overcoming the disease. Following a successful surgery, Tisdale is in good spirits and health and will be returning home shortly to recover before he picks up touring again later this fall.

In a press release, Tisdale says, “I have complete faith that with the Lord’s blessings, this surgery will eliminate the cancer from my body, and I’ll soon be back on the road doing what I do best. There is a lot more music inside me, and once I am back on my feet, I look forward to sharing my joy with my fans, friends, and fellow musicians.”
