He then returned to Instagram to share he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Duggan said he has been living with the diagnosis for a “couple of months” and would be undergoing surgery the following day.

Debra then shared another update after his surgery saying it went “as planned.”

“He is resting comfortably now. Thank you for your prayers, good vibes and well wishes. Please continue them as he continues to heal,” she added.

Duggan was previously hospitalized in September 2019 for a “severe infection,” according to his wife. He started an IndieGoGo campaign in November 2013 to raise money to repair his torn rotator cuff. The campaign closed one month later, exceeding its $6,500 with a grand total of $10,396. The couple share two daughters: Celia and Rebecca.
