Former Journey singer Steve Perry has opened up to fans

on his Fan Asylum website for only the second time in 2013. In a lengthy and extremely touching blog post, he revealed that he fell in love with a woman who ended up succumbing to cancer, and that he himself suffered a recent cancer scare.

 

Perry wrote that he fell for psychologist andbreast cancer survivor Kellie Nash after seeing her in a cancer TV special and deciding that he simply had to meet her. "In May of 2011, I was with Patty Jenkins in an editing room as she was putting the final editing touches on what was to be the closing segment of a Lifetime Channel breast cancer special called 'Five,'" he recalled. "As the opening scenes camera panned across an outside hospital patio, a narrator's voice commented on their lives and their types of cancer. The camera came across this girl sitting there laughing…I asked [Patty] if she would send Kellie an email that your friend Steve would love to take her to coffee or lunch sometime.

"Patty agreed to do so but said, 'Before I do that I think there's something I should tell you first. After a 3 year battle she was in remission for 8 months then it came back in her lungs and bones and now she's Stage 4 fighting for her life.'"

Steve Perry was admittedly taken aback. "I was frozen……. I didn't know what to do……..

I had lost my mom, dad, grandparents that raised me and I was an only child so my first thought was to maybe not send the email; then my heart said, Maybe we could be friends or maybe she could be my shrink. So I said, 'Please send it.'"

Once the two met in person, it was love at first sight, and they ended up dating for a year and a half. "Yes, we both knew that we were meant to be together. My life was forever changed in ways I will explain at another time but it was all because of my Kellie," said Perry. Steve Perry was by Nash's side as she battled cancer. Together, they relocated to New York, where Nash tried an alternative treatment and the couple "had the most magical summer of our lives together." But Nash's cancer came back, and sadly, she died in December 2012.

"She was so strong, so courageous and we really loved each other so very much. I've been trying to grieve and not run from this loss so for the last 5 months that's what I've been doing along with recalling everything being in Love with Kellie taught me," Perry wrote.

Then, three weeks ago,Steve  Perry had a mole removed from his face that turned out to be cancerous. "I've had two surgeries in two weeks to remove all the cancer cells and I've been told they think they got it all and no other treatments are required," Perry revealed.

Steve Perry confessed that he was feeling down last Sunday, with Nash's birthday approaching, so he went for a drive and ran into former MTV VJ Martha Quinn at a street fair. Martha asked him to pose for a picture and Perry obliged, even though he still had a scar on his face from his operations.

Aside from recovering from surgery,Steve Perry also seems to be nursing a broken heart, writing: "Though Kellie and I were only together for one-and-a-half years, it was a lifetime of love packed into every moment."

Although Perry made no mention of performing or recording, his former bandmates in Journey are set to kick off their latest tour on June 28 with a two-night stand at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida.

I am so glad that Steve Perry is ok, I loved him growing up

I use to have the biggest crush on him
