What caused DJ Casper’s death?

After a protracted fight with liver and kidney cancer, DJ Casper passed away. He first disclosed in 2016 that he had received a diagnosis for the illnesses.

He told his followers that he was in remission in 2018. However, Perry’s health issues seemed to have returned at the beginning of 2023, and he claimed he was having trouble eating.

In a sit-down interview with ABC7 at his home in May 2023, the musician also disclosed that he was losing a lot of weight while discussing his life in detail.

“I used to weigh 236 pounds, and I think I’m about 60 pounds less,” he claimed.

If you know me, you are aware that I won’t stop moving forward.

“I’m going to go until I can’t go,” she said.
