Nephew Tommy, host of Oprah Winfrey Network’s “Ready to Love” reality show and media personality on the Steve Harvey radio show, shocked fans when he revealed he has been battling thyroid cancer.
The funnyman, whose real name is Thomas Miles, announced the news on social media after he underwent surgery.
The comedian posted, “May 18th, 2022 I got the call that I had been diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. August 24, 2022 surgery was performed. ALL CANCER IS 100% GONE. No chemotherapy necessary. GOD IS IN THE BLESSING BUSINESS. My voice is slowly coming back around. Get ready…I will grab that Mic once again. If I can be an example for anyone. Stay on top of your health. Get check ups on a regular basis .It helps to already know God…it helps to already have a relationship with God. That way when you call on him…HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE#NowvsThen.”
He also thanked his wife, Jaqueline Miles, for being by his side. Mrs. Miles also makes guest appearance on her husband’s OWN reality show.
“Thank you to my wife for her support. I am truly blessed If I can be an example for anyone. Stay on top of your health. Get check ups on a regular basis. It helps to already know God…it helps to already have a relationship with God. That way when you call on him…HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE,” the post read.

“To EVERYONE in my village that took care of me, prayed for me, came to visit me…I am humble and grateful to have you in my life. To those going through difficult times or a major storm in your life…the best thing I can tell you. DON’T GET CAUGHT OUT THERE WITHOUT GOD ON YOUR SIDE,” he said.

I pray continued health and success on his road to recovery and I’m looking forward to this man’s next BIG move!” Jones said. “Whatever it is, it’s next level stuff and it will keep us laughing even louder. It’s plain to see…he’s got more work to do…we’re all here for it!”
