E-VERY-BO-DY CLAP YOUR HANDS: ‘Cha Cha Slide' Creator DJ Casper BEATS Cancer

​ ​ ​ ​

Praise report! DJ Casper – the “Cha Cha Slide” creator – just beat cancer! Celebrate with him inside…

The “Cha Cha Slide” has been bringing entertainment to cookouts all across the nation since 2000. The creator of the track is celebrating a HUGE victory. The man behind the famous dance anthem recently opened up about his battle with cancer.

DJ Casper (real name Willie Perry Jr.) was diagnosed with kidney AND liver cancer in 2016.

"In 2016, they diagnosed me with two forms of cancer. Renal and neuroendocrine, which is kidney and liver," DJ Casper said.

Even more he got his cancer diagnosis, DJ Casper endured a few health scares.

"I was lead poisoned at 24 months and at 22 [years old] I had a brain aneurysm," he shared.

He also had detached retinas which led to major eye surgery. Sheesh. He really has been through it.

DJ Casper got through those obstacles and took on his cancer diagnosis head on.

It was life or death, and DJ Casper chose to fight for his life.

"Maybe in the process of me going through the cancer situation, that was God's way of just slowing me down just a little bit," he said. "But he kept me here for a reason, definitely for a reason."

With everything he has gone through, he def has a purpose on this earth. We're SO happy to hear he beat cancer and pray he continues being healthy and happy.

By the way, next August will mark the 20th anniversary of the “Cha Cha Slide."

Time is most definitely flying.
