Little Jimmy Dickens [1]received a very special delivery over the weekend. A crate of cards and letters was brought to his door, containing well wishes from friends and fans, as he prepares to undergo three weeks of short-term radiation treatments [2] for a pre-cancerous condition on his vocal cords.

“If those are bills, you can keep ‘em,” he said. “If they’re royalty checks or cards from the best fans in the world, I couldn’t be more excited or appreciative.”

The Grand Ole Opry star is scheduled to begin his first week of treatments on July 10, a week later than anticipated, to give him time to recover from a short-term illness. Doctors expect him to make a full recovery. Fans are encouraged to continue sending cards and letters wishing him well to the address below:

Jimmy Dickens
c/o Grand Ole Opry House
2804 Opryland Drive
Nashville, TN 37214

Fans are also encouraged to share notes of encouragement on the Grand Ole Opry’s Facebook page at facebook.com/grandoleopry [3] or on Twitter using #WeLoveTater.
