YouTuber PeeWeeToms Provides Emotional Update Regarding His Terminal Cancer

YouTuber PeeWeeToms has revealed that his terminal cancer has begun spreading throughout his body, infecting major organs, his nervous system, and even bone.

The YouTuber, who currently boasts 127k subscribers, has been chronicling his journey with the disease since July 2015.

The cancer – sarcomatoid carcinoma, specifically – was diagnosed as inoperable in April of 2018, where Toms broke the news in an emotional video after a failed surgery.

However, the sickness has gotten even worse – and it appears that there’s little hope for Toms’ recovery.

Toms uploaded a solemn video informing viewers of this update. In the video, Toms looks much thinner – after just six months since the previous diagnosis, his voice has gotten raspy, and his cheekbones are highly visible.

Toms read off the results of his scan, stating that the video wouldn’t be easy to make.

“There’s been mass growth on my chest wall… my liver has mass metastasis. I have now got erosion in my bone, along with bone cancer. Life expectancy now is not very long at all.”

He likewise revealed that an amputation of his arm and part of his chest would not be possible due to the cancer’s growth.

While Toms said that he would post an update on his website, nothing has yet been published.

He stated that he was devastated by the news, and would spend his time with friends and family. However, he isn’t going to stop making videos. 

Toms expressed a desire to keep uploading content, and to keep “fighting for time” in spite of his rapidly declining health.

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
