Here’s something you probably didn’t know about Jenelle Evans’ husband, David Eason — he fought cancer, and won! While the two voluntarily share nearly every detail with their fans on Teen Mom 2, it’s one part of his life story that he has kept relatively below the radar — at least until now.

The mother-of-three first opened up about his health in a series of tweets, which have since been deleted. Check out the video below to see what she shared.

While Jenelle insisted in the tweets above that her husband not only had cancer, but was also abandoned by his family during his time of need, reddit slueths have attempted to debunk this theory. One user found a screenshot from David’s mom’s Facebook stating that the surgery to remove his thyroid was preventative. However, he has since taken to social media to confirm his own medical history.

“Thyroid and lymph node cancer to be exact. I’ve had two surgeries and two radiation treatments along with lifetime medications. Most people don’t know that because I’m not an attention-seeking whore like this dumb bitch,” he wrote on Facebook, though it’s unclear who he was addressing. “I have a 10 percent chance of cancer reoccurrence and being that it was in my throat and my lymph nodes, that’s not good chances. I appreciate your concerns on my health and life but I really hope you seek some professional help before you hurt someone or yourself. Don’t get yourself hurt by someone like me who f–ks people up when they f–k with my family.”
