Though doctors have given him just six months until his kidneys fail, American Idol's Scott MacIntyre refuses to let his illness slow him down.
"There is a lot of uncertainty about the immediate future, as you can imagine," MacIntyre tells PEOPLE of being diagnosed with kidney failure. "But for now, I'm still very mobile and I'm going to continue to perform and speak as long as I have the strength to do so."
This is not the first time MacIntyre has faced a health crisis. The season 8 Idol contestant, 29 – who was born blind – had to undergo a kidney transplant at the age of 22 after he was diagnosed with kidney failure in his late teens.
