ďIím going completely deaf in my right ear and Iím kinda losing sound in my left,Ē he told his 1.8 million followers.
Heís been experiencing dizziness and canít walk a straight line. ďAll of this out of nowhere, donít know how or why,Ē added Tank, whoís been seeing a doctor and taking medication.
Despite the scary prognosis, he remains optimistic. ďIt still hasnít given me a reason to give up. It still hasnít given me a reason to stop feeling like I can do and be everything that Iíve set out to be. The goals are still the same, to be great, to be the greatest.Ē
He plans to keep fighting and will be documenting his journey with the hope of inspiring others. ďNo matter what youíre going through, no matter where you find yourself, whether your bodyís failing you, whether your mind is failing you, whether your spirit is failing you, keep going, keep pushing,Ē he urged.
He received messages of support from friends and family including his wife Zena Foster. ďI love you babe and donít worry I can talk louder,Ē she commented.
