Jeff Burton fans sent him their best wishes on social media after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He is currently 55 years old and celebrated his last birthday in May 2022.

Burton revealed to his listeners in March 2021 that he had prostate cancer, saying the diagnosis came after a normal blood test showed his PSA level was rising. He said he had another check up after a few months and his PSA levels continued to rise.

Rizzuto recently shared an update on Burton’s health. He also said that Burton has had to go in and out of the show lately, as he has to take restroom breaks during his appearances. Rizzuto said:

“He was in and out. While he was on the air with us, he repeatedly texted me like, “Hey, turn me down, I have to run to the bathroom.”

Jeff’s wife Julie revealed in a social media post that doctors at Missouri Baptist were working to stabilize him and that he received two blood transfusions alongside a platelet transfusion at the time. Although her condition eventually stabilized, her blood levels were not normal and it was obvious that cancer was affecting her body.
