Rick Harris Diagnosed With Stage Four Liver Cancer


Taking to his Facebook account on Thursday, former NWA National Heavyweight Champion Rick Harris, also known as Black Bart, announced that he has been diagnosed with stage four liver cancer and will be starting chemotherapy treatment soon. He wrote,

“Well I’m not quite sure where to start except to just spit it out the way I usually do. I don’t want rumors so here’s the truth. I was diagnosed today with stage 4 colon cancer that has also spread to my liver. I am not the kind to just roll over and play dead so you all should know that I will fight it with all I have in me. Since I am a child of God and He is in my heart always I believe I have a head start. I will see the oncologist next week and start chemotherapy ASAP. The main thing I ask from my Facebook people is for prayer because I believe we can all use extra prayers. I will post updates when I have them.”


In the territory days, Rick Harris competed in various promotions such as WWF, Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling, Georgia Championship Wrestling, Mid-South Wrestling, World Class Championship Wrestling, Continental Wrestling Association, and more.
