“I was working on a movie when I had a dream that I had a brain tumor, and it was like no other dream that I’d ever had. I had become friendly with the set doctor on that movie who was on the board of the local hospital,”

“I went to her that morning and I said, ‘listen, I had a really scary dream last night and you’re probably going to think I’m crazy, but I think I have a brain tumor and I’d really like to get it checked out.’ And she said, ‘you are crazy, but you shouldn’t have to live with that fear, so I’ll order you an MRI—or CAT scan—tomorrow.'”

The actor further recalled that the doctor returned with the test results and revealed that he did have a brain tumor behind his left ear. Jamie Foxx has been suffering from his own personal medical condition but he seems to be recovering quite speedily.
