Terminally Ill Comedian Quincy Jones Opens Up About Cancer Battle and HBO Special: 'I Can't See Myself Withering Away'

It's been just over two months since Ellen DeGeneres helped terminally-ill aspiring comedian Quincy Jones land an HBO special – and now, he's just one day away from having his story hit the small screen.
In anticipation of Thursday's Quincy Jones: Burning the Light premiere, Jones, 32, opened up to Entertainment Weekly about his cancer battle, his comedy special and his perspective on life after being diagnosed with stage-4 mesothelioma cancer last year and was told that he has only a year to live.
Of his diagnosis, Jones explained he went through months of testing before his official diagnosis.
"I went in at the end of 2014. My stomach is filled up with ascites, which is fluid in the body," he said. "It's supposed to be circulating to organs but it was backed up in my belly and we didn't know why. After about six or seven months of testing, that's when we came up with the diagnosis that I had cancer. A few months later, they gave me the prognosis of a year."
