I have approximately 1 to 3 years to live, actor announces through a Facebook post

Evil Dead 2 actor Danny Hicks recently revealed that he has stage 4 cancer and is left with approximately one to three years of life.

As per Variety, the 68-year-old actor made the announcement through a post on his Facebook page.

"To all of the people that I never got to meet, and the 6,018 die hard fans that enjoyed my work. I have some bad news. I have been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. I have approximately 1 to 3 years to live. But I gotta tell ya, I sure as hell packed a whole bunch of living into my 68 years," he wrote.

"I got no change coming back that's for sure. And not too many regrets. Ok, gotta go. I'm gunna find out just what in the hell is going on down in that fruit cellar," his post further read.
