‘Cha-Cha Slide’ Creator Battles Two Types Of Cancer
Everybody and their mama (literally) have heard his song and done his dance. We’re talking about the one and only Cha-Cha Slide by Casper or Mr. C, the Slide Man. Chances are you’ve heard it at a wedding, barbecue or at your office party — either way, this Chicago native has made everyone around the world dance.
Now, he’s hoping to beat his diseases so he can dance once again.
Born Willie Perry, Jr, Casper called on his wife when he didn’t feel right.
“He told me that when he went to urinate, he found blood in his urine,” Joyce Lynn Perry, his wife who is also a registered nurse said. “I told him, ‘go to the emergency room right now’ and he went.”
At the hospital doctors said they found that he had a tumor the size of a football.
