This is the latest health scare for Jake Roberts, who also battled cancer earlier this year. He announced over the summer he was cancer free.
Richard Reacts: I’m obviously not a doctor but the immediate concern is the pneumonia. However, the bigger issue could be the mass on his brain as doctors will have to work to find out to find out if it is malignant. I certainly wish Jake the best.
