Kelis' Husband Reveals Doctors Can Do Nothing More for Him Amid Cancer Battle

Kelis' husband, Mike Mora, has revealed that doctors have told him there's nothing more they can do to treat his Stage IV stomach cancer.

Photographer Mora, 36, revealed in late September that he had been diagnosed with cancer in September 2020, with doctors giving him 18 months to live.

In the days that followed, Mora, who has been married to Kelis since 2014, shared further details of his grueling battle as he appeared to remain positive in his posts.

However, on Thursday, he took to Instagram to reveal that he had received the "horrifying" news that doctors shared with him on his most recent hospital stay.

He wrote: "So the morning of my last UCLA hospital stay, doctors came in my room and gave me the most horrifying, unexpected news.

"I did not understand the language written on this paper. All I knew from the look in their faces was that it wasn't a good diagnosis. It was the worst diagnosis. And they were scared for me.

"I asked how they were going to help me. They said they couldn't do anything else for me. I had to search on my for some sort of solution.. Scary days."

"The story will continue. Love you @kelis," he concluded his heart-wrenching post.

He also shared an image of a circle around the words: "Gastric adenocarcinoma with diffuse type/signet ring cell features (poorly cohesive carcinoma)."

Earlier in October, Mora revealed on Instagram that he started to experience "the worst pain" in his stomach shortly after moving on a farm outside Los Angeles with his family.

At the time he took sick, Kelis, now 42, had recently given birth to their daughter. They also have son Shepherd, 5, while Kelis shares 12-year-old son, Knight, with her ex-husband Nas.

"Loss of appetite. Pain in my back also started to creep in," Mora wrote when describing his symptoms, adding that he "finally decided to do something about it. It was a bit late. But just in time."

Mora, who was diagnosed with advanced gastric adenocarcinoma after seeing three specialists, wrote in one of his posts: "They said 18 months. It's been exactly 12. Here we go.. Scared as F¥#% ... The story will continue.. Love you @kelis."

He also shared a photo of an intravenous drip in his arm, adding the caption: "I am posting this...after so much thought. Many hours thinking of what the right thing to do is. Not because of a selfish reason. not because I want people to feel bad or sorry for me and my family."

"I am posting this because life is full of the most unexpected situations," he went on. "I never thought this could happen to me. At just 36, with 3 kiddos, and a wife that loves me. I want to be able to help those that might be experiencing something like this—a life altering disease full of questions and doubt—maybe, hopefully.

"By showing that it's possible to make it through. You always see people post about how life is too short. How you should reach out to those you love no matter where life has taken you. It is the truth. Don't take your time here, your time with friends, family, for granted. S*** can be over just like that!

"This was the first of many, many more iv's and needles to be pricked on my arm... The story will continue.. Love you @kelis #thestorywillcontinue #iwillsurvive."
